Project: Automatic Authoring of a Video Biography

We propose an automatic authoring method of video biography using Web contents. A video biography is composed of three parts: childhood, profession, and personal life. The proposed research extracts keyphrases on important events for each of these parts from the online encyclopedia Wikipedia, and then retrieve images from an image search engine that correspond with the important events of the person. Focusing on the objects and scenes of the obtained images, by selecting images that share the same features that represent the keyphrases in general, The proposed method selects images that visually represent the important events of the famous person, well. We used ORB and Visual Concepts for representing image contents, and they were switched by the types of the keyphrase and matched. Finally, we produce a video biography as a slide-show of the selected images with captions.
