Most multimedia applications try to deliver multimedia content to end users according to their information needs. Thus, multimedia computing actually plays the role of a bridge between multimedia data and user needs. In past years, however, the multimedia research community mostly focus on multimedia content analysis and understanding, while the user needs over multimedia data are rarely researched, which results in the Intention Gap problem. This talk will first present the social-sensed multimedia computing concept and framework to inject social factors into traditional multimedia computing to ultimately bridge the intention gap. Then we will show several case studies of social sensed multimedia computing, including social-sensed image search, recommendation, and video replication.
Wenwu Zhu is with Computer Science Department of Tsinghua University as national Professor of “1000 People Plan” of China. Prior to his current post, he was a Senior Researcher and Research Manager at Microsoft Research Asia. He was the Chief Scientist and the Director at Intel Research China from 2004 to 2008. He worked at Bell Labs as Member of Technical Staff during 1996-1999 in New Jersey.
Wenwu Zhu is a Fellow of the IEEE and ACM Distinguished Scientist. He has published over 200 referred papers and is inventor or co-inventor of over 40 patents. His current research interests are in the area of multimedia communications and networking, including multimedia cloud computing, social media computing, and wireless multimedia communications. He served(s) on various editorial boards, such as Guest Editor for the Proceedings of the IEEE, IEEE T-CSVT, IEEE JSAC, and IEEE Wireless Communication; Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing, IEEE Transactions on Multimedia, and IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems for Video Technology. He received the Best Paper Award in ACM Multimedia 2012, the Best Paper Award in IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems for Video Technology in 2001, and the other 3 Best PaperAwards. He is the past Chair of Visual Signal Processing and Communication Technical Committee of IEEE Circuits and Systems Society (2004-2008), and served in the Steering Committee of IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing (2007-2010). He served as TPC Co-Chair of IEEE ISCAS 2013, and will serve as TPC Co-Chair for ACM Multimedia 2014.
Wenwu Zhu received the M.S. degree from Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago, and the Ph.D. degree from Polytechnic Institute of New York University, New York, in 1993 and 1996, respectively, in Electrical and Computer Engineering.
