Image & Multimedia fran├žais

Retrieval of multimedia data is a highly challenging problem which plays a key role at the core of several industrial technologies and products: search engines, video on demand (VoD), video games, accessibility to audio-visual heritage…
Every day, multimedia documents are produced in large quantity. They are made up of information that is multimodal (text, image, sound…), heterogeneous and redundant.

Each modality is currently processed separately. The challenge is to make a fusion of the information and processes to better retrieve the documents.


The "Image & Multimedia" thematic gathers the following research fields:

  • Multimedia fusion
  • Image and video indexing and retrieval
  • Scene and object classification
  • Object recognition and retrieval
  • Machine learning

An important challenge is to process large scale databases with complex and heterogenous data.
