  • Publication number: 20200162799
    Abstract: A method and system for auto-curating a media are provided. Media content is received over the network interface. A set of markers is identified for the media content, each marker corresponding to one of a plurality of visible and audible cues in the media content. Segments in the media content are identified based on the identified set of markers. An excitement score is computed for each segment based on the identified markers that fall within the segment. A highlight clip is generated by identifying segments having excitement scores greater than a threshold.

  • Patent number: 9734166
    Abstract: A first set of contextual dimensions is generated from one or more textual descriptions associated with a given event, which includes one or more examples. A second set of contextual dimensions is generated from one or more visual features associated with the given event, which includes one or more visual example recordings. A similarity structure is constructed from the first set of contextual dimensions and the second set of contextual dimensions. One or more of the textual descriptions is matched with one or more of the visual features based on the similarity structure.

  • Patent number: 9710760
    Abstract: A system and method for constructing a hierarchical multi-faceted classification structure includes organizing a plurality of visual categories into a multi-relational reference ontology that accounts for a plurality of different types of relationships. Media artifacts are categorized into the plurality of visual categories. The categories of artifacts are refined based on faceted ontology relationships or constraints from the multi-relational reference ontology. The multi-relational reference ontology and the one or more media artifacts with relationships are stored as the hierarchical multi-faceted classification structure in computer readable memory storage.
