Multimedia Evaluation Benchmark (MediaEval)
MediaEval 2020 Registration Now Open

The Multimedia Evaluation Benchmark (MediaEval) offers challenges in the form of shared tasks. The goal of MediaEval is to develop and evaluate new algorithms and technologies for multimedia retrieval, analysis and exploration. MediaEval tasks are innovative, involving multiple modalities, (e.g., images, video, music, user interaction data, sensor data, lifelogging data) and focusing on the human and social aspects of multimedia. Our larger aim is to promote reproducible research that makes multimedia a positive force for society.

MediaEval 2020 Tasks:

Emotion and theme recognition in music
Emotional Mario: Believable AI agents in video games
FakeNews detection on social media
Flood-related multimedia: Analyzing social media on natural disasters
Insight for wellbeing: Multimodal personal health lifelog data analysis
Medico medical multimedia
