Research towards a multimedia test collection

There will be a seminar at 4pm on Mon. 11 May. for the Information Retrieval group in room F091 Computing Science Dept., 17 Lilybank Gardens on "Research towards a multimedia test collection". I will talk about the early ideas emerging from MIRA on a project to research a Multimedia Test collection.

This talk will be about preliminary ideas for a project about a multimedia test collection. It is already clear that instead of a simple proposal to build a TC, much of the research will be about whether such a notion is sensible, and if so in what way. Thus evaluating the evaluations will be the primary theme, and exploring alternative proxy measures (comparable to precision and recall) will be a second theme.
