"Discovering Visual Patterns in Big Video Data"
Abstract: Motivated by the previous success in mining structured data (e.g., transaction data) and semi-structured data (e.g., text), it has aroused our curiosity to discover meaningful patterns in more complex data like images and videos. However, unlike transaction and text data that are composed of discrete elements without much ambiguity (i.e. predefined items and vocabularies), visual patterns are composed of complex structure, and exhibit large variabilities in their visual appearances, thus challenge existing data mining and pattern discovery algorithms. This talk will discuss my recent work of discovering visual patterns in videos, as well as its applications in video scene understanding, summarization and anomaly detection.

He is currently a Nanyang Assistant Professor at Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore, leading the video analytics program at School of EEE. His PhD thesis "Mining Image and Video Data" received the Outstanding EECS Ph.D. Thesis award from Northwestern University. He also received the Best Doctoral Spotlight Award from IEEE Conf. Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition Conference (CVPR'09). He co-chairs workshops at CVPR'12'13 and ICCV'13, and serves as Area Chair for IEEE Winter Conf. on Computer Vision (WACV'14) and IEEE Conf. on Multimedia Expo (ICME'14). He will be Organizing Chair and Area Chair for Asian Conf. on Computer Vision (ACCV'14). He recently gives tutorials at IEEE ICIP'13, FG'13, ICME'12, SIGGRAPH VRCAI'12, and PCM'12. He currently serves as associate editor for Visual Computer Journal and Journal of Multimedia.
