2018 IEEE International Workshop on Multimedia Big Data and Deep Learning

In Conjunction with The First IEEE International Conference on Multimedia Information Processing and Retrieval (MIPR 2018)

Miami, Florida, USA
April 10-12, 2018

Multimedia big data and deep learning have been currently considered as two major trends in data science. With the proliferation of social media, sharing websites, and mobile technologies, we are stepping a new era of multimedia big data. Moreover, tremendous advances in deep learning in recent years have led machine learning to its golden stage. Deep learning has been growing exponentially in different applications such as Natural Language Processing, speech processing, and computer vision. However, its applications to multi-modality data using big data solutions are still in the initial stage. Handling large, heterogeneous, high-dimensional, unbalanced, and unstructured multimedia data with limited labels is a great potential direction for the future of multimedia research. To take advantage of the inimitable capability of big data and deep learning in multimedia research, it is important to bring forward the recent techniques and research in this area. We invite active multimedia researchers to submit their latest, original, and high-quality research work addressing the challenges and providing novel solutions in multimedia big data and deep learning. The main topics of this workshop include, but are not limited to: 

  • Multimedia big data classification
  • Multimedia big data retrieval
  • Unsupervised/semi-supervise/transfer learning for multimedia big data
  • Advances in multimedia deep learning
  • Low power and efficient deep learning for multimedia data
  • Big data solutions for deep learning and multimedia data
  • Spatio-temporal multimedia data analysis
  • Recommendation systems using deep learning
  • Social network analysis using deep learning
  • Optimization and distributed techniques for multimedia deep learning
  • Applications of deep learning in multimedia
