Increasingly rich and large-scale social multimedia data (including text, images, audio, video) are being generated and posted to social networking and media sharing websites. Researchers from multidisciplinary areas are developing methods for processing social multimedia and employing such rich multi-modality data for various applications. We present a few recent advances in the nascent area of using social multimedia as sensors, including suggesting suitable social groups from a user's personal photo collection, producing popular and diverse tourism routes from crowd-sourced geotagged photos, predicting academic performance from class social networks and assignments, forecasting election outcome based on image sharing activities and image sentiments, and so on. We will also share some initial findings regarding cultural differences in social multimedia between US and China.
Jiebo Luo joined the University of Rochester in Fall 2011 after over fifteen years at Kodak Research Laboratories, where he was a Senior Principal Scientist leading research and advanced development. He has been involved in numerous technical conferences, including serving as the program co-chair of ACM Multimedia 2010 and IEEE CVPR 2012. He is the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Multimedia, and has served on the editorial boards of the IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence, IEEE Transactions on Multimedia, IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems for Video Technology, Pattern Recognition, Machine Vision and Applications, and Journal of Electronic Imaging. He is a Fellow of the SPIE, IEEE, and IAPR.
