The first workshop on Media Fragment Creation and Re-mixing took place last week at the ICME 2013. Despite being on the day after the main conference ended, and there being 9 parallel workshops/tutorials taking place, the workshop was well attended with 20-25 unique attendees over the day who first heard a keynote by Prof. Noboru Babaguchi of Osaka University on “Example-based Remixing of Multimedia Contents”.
This was followed by scientific talks which covered the workshop topics of fragment creation and remixing.
Topics for fragment creation included video concept detection, visual similarity analysis and object re-detection in video.
Topics for fragment remixing included use of the Media Fragment URI specification in describing (social) media item differences and a Remix Instrument based on Fragment feature analysis.
