Evaluation Conferences - Like Gladiators for the Retrieval World?
This event took place on Wednesday 05 August 2009 at 11:30
The purpose of this talk is to review some evaluation conferences in the field of image and video retrieval. The main goal of these evaluation conferences is to support research within the information retrieval community by providing the infrastructure necessary for large-scale evaluation of image and video retrieval methodologies. Other goals are to encourage research on large test collections, to speed the transfer of technology from research labs into commercial products, to increase the availability of appropriate evaluation techniques and finally, to include new evaluation techniques more applicable to current systems. In particular, we will talk about ImageCLEF and TRECVID and will share our experience in participating in the past calls of 2008 and 2009.

We are also inviting top experts in AI and Knowledge Technologies to discuss major socio-technological topics with an audience that comprises both members of the Knowledge Media Institute, as well as the wider staff at The Open University. Differently from our seminar series, these events follow a Q&A format.
