TRECVID 2019 is a worldwide competition on video analysis and took place in Maryland , US on November 12 and 13. Prof. Shirahama and Mr. Sakurai were there and gave a poster presentation about our video retrieval system. Our poster can be found here.
We participated in Ad-hoc Video Search (AVS) task where participants are asked to analyse more than 1M videos and find the ones that are relevant to natural language queries, such as “Find shots of a group of people walking on the beach” and “Find shots of a truck being driven in the daytime”. We are ranked at the 5th position among 9 teams participating in AVS task (fully automatic category). The 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th ranked teams are Alibaba Group, Renmin University of China, joint team of Waseda University, Meisei University and Softbank Corporation, and joint team of CMU, Monash University etc., respectively. We will try to improve our system to obtain a better result at TRECVID 2020.
