Time: July 27, 3pm
Venue: 102, Haiyun Teaching Building
This talk addresses several important technical issues in generating graphical representation from heterogeneous unstructured multimedia feeds derived from social network contents for rendering on consumer mobile devices. We will first present several pressing technical challenges associated with creating a browsing system that can summarize information overloading unstructured social media feeds and produce a novel GIST, namely, Graphical Intelligent Semantic Transform, for effective and visually pleasing rendering on a mobile device by the social media users. We will then illustrate innovative solutions to solving a suite of interdisciplinary problems associated with developing such a system. Preliminary results will be shown to demonstrate the feasibility of creating such a GIST for graphical rendering of information overloading social media feeds on individual consumer mobile devices.
