Metadata extraction from text in soccer domain

Göktürk, Özkan
Video databases and content based retrieval in these databases have become popular with the improvements in technology. Metadata extraction techniques are used for providing data to video content. One popular metadata extraction technique for mul- timedia is information extraction from text. For some domains, it is possible to nd accompanying text with the video, such as soccer domain, movie domain and news domain. In this thesis, we present an approach of metadata extraction from match reports for soccer domain. The UEFA Cup and UEFA Champions League Match Reports are downloaded from the web site of UEFA by a web-crawler. These match reports are preprocessed by using regular expressions and then important events are extracted by using hand-written rules. In addition to hand-written rules, two dierent machine learning techniques are applied on match corpus to learn event patterns and automatically extract match events. Extracted events are saved in an MPEG-7 le. A user interface is implemented to query the events in the MPEG-7 match corpus and view the corresponding video segments.


Natural language interface on a video data model
Erözel, Güzen; Çiçekli, Fehime Nihan; Department of Computer Engineering (2005)
The video databases and retrieval of data from these databases have become popular in various business areas of work with the improvements in technology. As a kind of video database, video archive systems need user-friendly interfaces to retrieve video frames. In this thesis, an NLP based user interface to a video database system is developed using a content-based spatio-temporal video data model. The data model is focused on the semantic content which includes objects, activities, and spatial properties of...
Metadata-based modeling of information resources on the web
Ozel, SA; Altıngövde, İsmail Sengör; Ulusoy, O; Ozsoyoglu, G; Ozsoyoglu, ZM (Wiley, 2004-01-15)
This paper deals with the problem of modeling Web information resources using expert knowledge and personalized user information for improved Web searching capabilities. We propose a "Web information space" model, which is composed of Web-based information resources (HTML/XML [Hypertext Markup Language/Extensible Markup Language] documents on the Web), expert advice repositories (domain-expert-specified meta-data for information resources), and personalized information about users (captured as user profiles...
Image classification for content based indexing
Taner, Serdar; Severcan, Mete; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2003)
As the size of image databases increases in time, the need for content based image indexing and retrieval become important. Image classification is a key to content based image indexing. In this thesis supervised learning with feed forward back propagation artificial neural networks is used for image classification. Low level features derived from the images are used to classify the images to interpret the high level features that yield semantics. Features are derived using detail histogram correlations obt...
Cost-effective fault tolerant routing in networks on chip
Adanova, Venera; Doğru, Ali Hikmet; Department of Computer Engineering (2008)
Growing complexity of Systems on Chip (SoC) introduces interconnection problems. As a solution for communication bottleneck the new paradigm, Networks on Chip (NoC), has been proposed. Along with high performance and reliability, NoC brings in area and energy constraints. In this thesis we mainly concentrate on keeping communication-centric design environment fault-tolerant while considering area overhead. The previous researches suggest the adoption solution for fault-tolerance from multiprocessor architec...
Unmanned aerial vehicle based visualization of deep excavations using game engines
Teke, Türker; Pekcan, Onur; Department of Civil Engineering (2016)
In the last two decades, the advancements in monitoring tools and growing use of information technologies lead to better visualization of construction sites. The challenge in this field is to develop an extensively capable tool for safety check, progress monitoring and quality control. In this sense, Geotechnical Engineers need a comprehensive understanding of field conditions, which includes topography, soil conditions, effect of nearby structures, etc. In this study, game engines are proposed as visualiza...
