Totally amazing and unexpected.
Our work in AI for movie trailer creation — as having achieved during my sabbatical leave in IBM TJ Watson Research Center, New York, just won the Best Brave New Idea Paper Award in ACM Multimedia 2017, the top multimedia conference.
The “Brand new Idea” (BNI) track aims for pioneering research work which might bring in disruptive innovation for the conference. It is thus a huge recognition for receiving the award in this special track.
It’s always exciting to see the work can bring impacts for IBM, contribute the industrial products, and provide the scientific values. In this oral paper, we covered how the work is realized, the evaluations, the impacts and further open opportunities.
It’s pity that I cannot attend the conference, held in Mountain View, CA, due to other important events in Taipei.
Feel free to enjoy the work and give us further comments.
