Title: Essex at MediaEval Predicting Media Memorability 2020 task by Janadhip Jacutprakart

Abstract: In this presentation, Janadhip will present the approaches and results of the participation of the Essex-NLIP team to the MediaEval 2020 Predicting Media Memorability task. The task requires participants to build systems that can predict short-term and long-term memorability scores on real-world video samples provided. The Essex-NLIP team investigated the use of different pre-computed features to predict the performance of memorability scores with various regressions. We used Random Forest, Decision Tree, Gradient Boosting, Extra Tree and Sequential regression models in this experiment. Different pre-computed features were compared using regression. Additionally, feature-fusion models are proposed in this paper to explore the efficiency of possible models to provide enhanced and accurate prediction outcome for both short-term and long-term memorability. 

Bio: Janadhip Jacutprakart is currently a Computer Science PhD student at the University of Essex. She finished her MSc in Data Science with Merit at the University of Essex in September 2020, received an MBA in marketing and management from the University of Thai Chamber of Commerce in 2018 and a Bachelor of Technology in Computer Graphic and Multimedia from Bangkok University International in 2009. She is currently pursuing her PhD study under the supervision of Dr Alba García Seco De Herrera. Her research focuses on the computer vision in radiology imaging with multi-disciplinary on information retrieval and natural language processing. She’s also a researcher in the ImageCLEFcaption research project with Dr Alba Garcia Seco De Herrera.
