For students interested in thesis or DBMM projects on semantic web, multimedia retrieval and analysis send me an e-mail so we can discuss the possibilities. Some interesting examples of completed Thesis or DBMM projects:

  • Silvio Giannini, Federico Santanni, "Airplane event detection and recognition using ontologies" (DBMM project) [pdf].

  • Alessio Bazzica, "Semantic annotation of audio elements in sports videos" (B.Sc. Thesis)

  • Andrea Boninsegni, Claudio Celletti, "A Natural Language-Based Interface for retrieval video Database" (DBMM project) [pdf].
