Personalized Egocentric Video Summarization of Cultural Tour on User Preferences Input
Abstract: In this paper, we propose a new method for customized summarization of egocentric videos according to specific user preferences, so that different users can extract different summaries from the same stream. Our approach, tailored on a cultural heritage scenario, relies on creating a short synopsis of the original video focused on key shots, in which concepts relevant to user preferences can be visually detected and the chronological flow of the original video is preserved. Moreover, we release a new dataset, composed of egocentric streams taken in uncontrolled scenarios, capturing tourists cultural visits in six art cities, with geolocalization information. Our experimental results show that the proposed approach is able to leverage user's preferences with an accent on storyline chronological flow and on visual smoothness.
