As part of a project for indexing large video collections, I am working on person recognition and visualization techniques for effective exploration. My research focus is on visual question answering for videos (VideoQA). This involves the extraction of visual information, including person/concept recognition and geolocation estimation, as well as the modeling of knowledge graphs to automatically answer questions based on the visual content of a video. My work is based on deep learning methods.
