We propose a method to detect events and event boundaries in soccer videos by using web-casting texts and audio-visual features. The events and their inaccurate time information given in web-casting texts need to be aligned with the visual content of the video. We overcome this issue by utilizing textual, visual and audio features. Existing methods assume that the time at which the event occurs is given precisely (in seconds). However, most web-casting texts presented by popular organizations such as uefa.com (the official site of Union of European Football Associations) provide the time information in minutes rather than seconds. We propose a robust method which is able to handle uncertainties in the time points of the events. As a result of our experiments, we claim that our method detects event boundaries satisfactorily for uncertain web-casting texts, and that the use of audio-visual features improves the performance of event boundary detection.

Event Detection by Change Tracking on Community Structure of Temporal Networks
Aktunc, Riza; Toroslu, İsmail Hakkı; Karagöz, Pınar (2018-08-31)
Event detection is a popular research problem, aiming to detect events from online data sources with least possible delay. Most of the previous work focus on analyzing textual content such as social media postings to detect happenings. In this work, we consider event detection as a change detection problem in network structure, and propose a method that detects change in community structure extracted from communication network. We study three versions of the method based on different change models. Experime...
Streaming Event Detection in Microblogs: Balancing Accuracy and Performance
SAHIN, OZLEM CEREN; Karagöz, Pınar; TATBUL, NESIME (2019-06-14)
In this work, we model the problem of online event detection in microblogs as a stateful stream processing problem and offer a novel solution that balances result accuracy and performance. Our new approach builds on two state of the art algorithms. The first algorithm is based on identifying bursty keywords inside blocks of blog messages. The second one involves clustering blog messages based on similarity of their contents. To combine the computational simplicity of the keyword-based algorithm with the sem...
Word Embedding Based Event Detection on Social Media
Ertugrul, Ali Mert; Velioglu, Burak; Karagöz, Pınar (2017-06-23)
Event detection from social media messages is conventionally based on clustering the message contents. The most basic approach is representing messages in terms of term vectors that are constructed through traditional natural language processing (NLP) methods and then assigning weights to terms generally based on frequency. In this study, we use neural feature extraction approach and explore the performance of event detection under the use of word embeddings. Using a corpus of a set of tweets, message terms...
Abnormal Crowd Behavior Detection Using Motion Information Images and Convolutional Neural Networks
Direkoğlu, Cem (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2020)
We introduce a novel method for abnormal crowd event detection in surveillance videos. Particularly, our work focuses on panic and escape behavior detection that may appear because of violent events and natural disasters. First, optical flow vectors are computed to generate a motion information image (MII) for each frame, and then MIIs are used to train a convolutional neural network (CNN) for abnormal crowd event detection. The proposed MII is a new formulation that provides a visual appearance of cro...
