I worked on improving the newsfeed project. The project records the BBC 8 o'clock news and it segments the stories and displays the user relevant stories matching to his query along with a few key frames and the extracted text from the news videos. I impoved the shot boundary detection algorithm previously used and improved the efficiency of the whole system.
