VideOlympics: Real-time evaluation of multimedia retrieval systems

View publication


Video search is an experience for the senses. As a result, traditional information retrieval metrics can't fully measure the quality of a video search system. To provide a more interactive assessment of today's video search engines, the authors have organized the VideOlympics as a real-time evaluation showcase where systems compete to answer specific video searches in front of a live audience. At VideOlympics, seeing and hearing is believing. © 2008 IEEE.
