The 'Semantic Analysis of Video' project at ADSC investigates and develops a computational framework suitable for semantic analysis of complex activities present in video. The current primary application of the techniques developed in this project is sports video analysis, where the goal is to detect important events and activities in sports videos. In this talk we will present the latest version of AutoScout, our prototype for semantic analysis of American football videos clips. We will also present our research progress with respect to action /event recognition and tracking in videos.
