The REPERE Challenge aims to support research on people recognition in multimodal conditions. To assess the technology progression, annual evaluation campaigns will be organized from 2012 to 2014. In this context, the REPERE corpus, a French videos corpus with multimodal annotation, has been developed. This paper presents datasets collected for the dry run(More)
Within the framework of the construction of a fact database, we defined guidelines to extract named entities, using a taxonomy based on an extension of the usual named entities definition. We thus defined new types of entities with broader coverage including substantive-based expressions. These extended named entities are hierarchical (with types and(More)
The evaluation of named entity recognition (NER) methods is an active field of research. This includes the recognition of named entities in speech transcripts. Evaluating NER systems on automatic speech recognition (ASR) output whereas human reference annotation was prepared on clean manual transcripts raises difficult alignment issues. These issues are(More)
In the QA and information retrieval domains progress has been assessed via evaluation campaigns(Clef, Ntcir, Equer, Trec).In these evaluations, the systems handle independent questions and should provide one answer to each question, extracted from textual data, for both open domain and restricted domain. Quaero is a program promoting research and industrial(More)
The Quaero program that promotes research and industrial innovation on technologies for automatic analysis and classification of multi-media and multilingual documents. Within its context a set of evaluations of Named Entity recognition systems was held in 2009. Four tasks were defined. The first two concerned traditional named entities in French broadcast(More)
Within the framework of the Quaero project, we proposed a new definition of named entities, based upon an extension of the coverage of named entities as well as the structure of those named entities. In this new definition, the extended named entities we proposed are both hierarchical and compositional. In this paper, we focused on the annotation of a(More)
RÉSUMÉ Le défi REPERE a pour objectif d'encourager les recherches et le développement de technologies dans le domaine de la reconnaissance des personnes par des indices multimodaux. Afin d'estimer la progression des solutions proposées, des campagnes annuelles d'évaluation autour de la reconnaissance multimodale des personnes sont organisées entre 2012 et(More)
