Each year, the Benchmarking Initiative for Multimedia Evaluation (MediaEval) offers challenges to the multimedia research community in the form of shared tasks. MediaEval tasks place their focus on the human and social aspects of multimedia. We are interested in how multimedia content can be used to produce knowledge and to create algorithms that support people in their daily lives. Many tasks are related to how people understand multimedia content, how they react to it, and how they use it. We emphasize the “multi” in multimedia: speech, audio, music, visual content, tags, users, and context. MediaEval attracts researchers with backgrounds in diverse areas, including multimedia content analysis, information retrieval, speech technology, computer vision, music information retrieval, social computing, recommender systems.
