Social media sites (e.g., Flickr, YouTube, and Facebook) are a popular distribution outlet for users looking to share their experiences and interests on the Web. These sites host substantial amounts of user-contributed materials (e.g., photographs, videos, and textual content) for a wide variety of real-world events of different type and scale. By automatically identifying these events and their associated user-contributed social media documents, which is the focus of this paper, we can enable… Expand
Identification and characterization of events in social media
Millions of users share their experiences, thoughts, and interests online, through social media sites (e.g., Twitter, Flickr, YouTube). As a result, these sites host a substantial number ofExpand
Identifying content for planned events across social media sites
TLDR
This paper focuses on the challenge of automatically identifying user-contributed content for events that are planned and, therefore, known in advance, across different social media sites, and develops query formulation strategies for retrieving content associated with an event on differentSocial media sites.

Various Techniques for Efficient Retrieval of Contents across Social Networks Based On Events
TLDR
Approaches for fin ding representative messages among a set of messages tha t correspond to the same event are explored, with the goal of finding high quality, relevant messages that provide useful even t information. Expand
Integrating multiple types of features for event identification in social images
TLDR
This study merges multiple types of features in an integrated manner to identify the event associated with user-contributed social multimedia objects and employs a probabilistic model based on Markov random field to connect each new multimedia object with the correct event. Expand
Selecting Quality Twitter Content for Events
TLDR
This paper explores approaches for finding representative messages among a set of Twitter messages that correspond to the same event, with the goal of identifying high quality, relevant messages that provide useful event information. Expand
Event Detection and Retrieval on Social Media
TLDR
This chapter presents several research efforts from recent years that tackle two main problems: a) event detection and b) event-based media retrieval and summarization. Expand
Bringing order to your photos: event-driven classification of flickr images based on social knowledge
TLDR
The algorithms introduced in this paper exploit the social information produced by users in form of tags, titles and photo descriptions, for classifying pictures into different event categories, and open new possibilities for multimedia retrieval, in particular image search. Expand
Exploiting Social Links for Event Identification in Social Media
We explore the use of social links (e.g., comment and authorship connections) for identifying events and their associated documents (e.g., photos, videos) in social media sites. To understand theExpand
Clustering Social Event Images Using Kernel Canonical Correlation Analysis
  • U. Ahsan, Irfan Essa

  • 2014 IEEE Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition Workshops
  • 2014
TLDR
An automatic clustering algorithm is proposed, which, given a large collection of images, groups them into clusters of different events using the image features and related metadata using the rich information associated with each uploaded image. Expand
Social Event Mining in Large Photo Collections
TLDR
Two aspects of social events mining are explored, first, the initial clustering of a given photo collection into single events and, second, the retrieval of relevant social events based on user queries. Expand

Event Identification in Social Media
TLDR
This work exploits the rich “context” associated with social media content, including user-provided annotations and automatically generated information, to exploit the problem of focus and form a variety of representations of social media documents using different context dimensions, and combines these dimensions in a principled way into a single clustering solution. Expand
Finding high-quality content in social media
TLDR
This paper introduces a general classification framework for combining the evidence from different sources of information, that can be tuned automatically for a given social media type and quality definition, and shows that its system is able to separate high-quality items from the rest with an accuracy close to that of humans.

How flickr helps us make sense of the world: context and content in community-contributed media collections
TLDR
A location-tag-vision-based approach to retrieving images of geography-related landmarks and features from the Flickr dataset is demonstrated, suggesting that community-contributed media and annotation can enhance and improve access to multimedia resources - and the understanding of the world. Expand
Towards automatic extraction of event and place semantics from flickr tags
TLDR
An approach for extracting semantics of tags, unstructured text-labels assigned to resources on the Web, based on each tag's usage patterns, and shows that the Scale-structure Identification method outperforms the existing techniques. Expand
Social tag prediction
TLDR
An entropy-based metric is found which captures the generality of a particular tag and informs an analysis of how well that tag can be predicted and it is found that tag-based association rules can produce very high-precision predictions as well as giving deeper understanding into the relationships between tags. Expand
Less talk, more rock: automated organization of community-contributed collections of concert videos
TLDR
The timing and link structure generated by the synchronization algorithm is used to improve the findability and representation of the event content, including identifying key moments of interest and descriptive text for important captured segments of the show. Expand
Event detection from flickr data through wavelet-based spatial analysis
TLDR
The effort in detecting events from Flickr photos by exploiting the tags supplied by users to annotate photos is presented, where a wavelet transform is employed to suppress noise and tags related with events are identified. Expand
Can social bookmarking improve web search?
TLDR
It is concluded that social bookmarking can provide search data not currently provided by other sources, though it may currently lack the size and distribution of tags necessary to make a significant impact. Expand
Web video topic discovery and tracking via bipartite graph reinforcement model
TLDR
A bipartite graph model is proposed that represents the correlation between web videos and their keywords, and automatic topic discovery is achieved through two steps - coarse topic filtering and fine topic re-ranking. Expand
Efficient network aware search in collaborative tagging sites
TLDR
This paper investigates efficient top-k processing when the score of an answer is computed as its popularity among members of a seeker's network, and develops algorithms based on maintaining score upper-bounds. Expand
