Abstract: "We propose multi-modal-story-oriented video summarization (MMSS) which, unlike previous works that use fine-tuned, domain-specific heuristics, provides a domain-independent, graph-based framework. MMSS uncovers correlations between information of different modalities and gives meaningful story-oriented news video summaries. MMSS can also be applied for video retrieval, achieving performance that matches the best traditional retrieval techniques (OKAPI and LSI), with no fine-tuned heuristics such as tf/idf."
