 Research Topics

  • "Low level" audio descriptors: speech, music, jingles, applauses, etc.
  • Multimedia indexing for automatic structuring of audiovisual documents,
  • Audio and video association.


 Current Research Activities

I currently work on the multimedia indexing: description and structuring of audiovisual contents. I approach in particular the following points:

  • Character indexing through the voice and the face (or/and costume),
  • Macrosegmentation of documents into sequences (programs),
  • Description of the sound environment.
