Detecting events in videos using semantic analytics of subtitles
AuthorLeer, Erik Bræck
Recently, television broadcasters such as the NRK and TV2 channels, have begun offering live internet television and movie archive along with their regular schedule, much like the known video archives such as Youtube and Vimeo. The amount of all television offered reduces the ability of the user to get an overview of the programs that are available at any given time, making the user will probably miss important events. Regular indexing engines for recommending does not generally work on media since it is hard to index media data. Tags and keywords describing a media le does only describe the whole le, making it difficult to use them for indexing and recommendation of specific scenes within the media. This thesis presents a text event detection system for discovering interesting events based on video subtitles. By performing textual analytics, our system is able to discover events that are not discoverable through regular syntactic search. We have, based on related work, extended algorithms used for discovering semantic relationships between different words. Also, we have experimented with several algorithm for capturing the essence of each sentence, relating the prominent sense of each sense towards the events. Our experiments illustrates how we can increase the accuracy of the algorithm used by performing a context exploration based on event keywords. The results shows that our system improved the base algorithm of the prototype by including more relevance methods like consecutive sentence similarity and similarity based on sentence internals.

Nikolaisen, Trygg Einar (Mastergradsoppgave; Master thesis, 2018-05-15)Introduction: Liposomes as drug delivery systems has been widely studied as a way to solubilize poorly soluble drugs, reduce side effects of chemotherapeutics and increase circulation time in vivo. Since the first descriptions of liposomes over 60 years ago, they have shown tendencies to shrink and swell when the external environment of the liposomes is altered. This phenomenon has been studied in ...
Implementing an electronic health record in a Nigerian secondary healthcare facility. Prospects and challenges Attah, Ambrose Ojadale (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2017-11-02)Nigeria is witnessing continuing advocacy and increase in number of individuals yearning for computerization of health information and healthcare processes. However, little is known about the opinions of the diverse healthcare providers who would ensure the successful implementation and meaningful use of health information technology in the country (Adeleke, Erinle et al. 2015). This study explores ...
