VTU 2022 : The AAAI-2022 Workshop On Video Transcript Understanding
Call For Papers
Thanks to the development of the Internet and video services such as YouTube, Facebook, and Twitch, people can easily share their own videos with people across continents on a daily basis. Along with books, these videos have become a new source of knowledge. However, the quality of the information in some of these videos is sometimes questionable and may contain unintentional or intentional misinformation, and political bias.
Moreover, the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in the widespread adoption of remote working, remote learning, and remote conferencing. These remote working environments demand many new applications for efficient video transcript understanding, such as meeting recording understanding, quality assurance in call centers, and automatic test scoring in educational testing. The recent advancements in methods and resources for speech recognition have also created more research opportunities around video transcript understanding.
The VTU workshop holds a research track and a shared task track. The research track aims to explore recent advances and remaining challenges on video transcript understanding. As this topic is a multi-modal subject, researchers from artificial intelligence, computer vision, speech processing, natural language processing, data mining, statistics, and other fields are invited to submit papers on recent advances, resources, tools, challenges for video transcript understanding. To this end, the topics of the workshop include but are not limited to the following:
Fundamental processing for video transcript, such as punctuation restoration, chunking, parsing and named entity recognition.
Text summarization and keyword extraction for transcripts
Event extraction, intent detection, and slot filling
Sentiment analysis for speech text processing
Noisy text processing
Fact-checking, evidence extraction
Question-Answering extraction from transcripts
Automatic Speech Recognition, and related systems such as speaker identification and filler word detection
Multi-modal, multilingual video-speech-text processing
