Multimedia content analysis for emotional characterization of music video clips
Nowadays, tags play an important role in the search and retrieval process in multimedia content sharing social networks. As the amount of multimedia contents explosively increases, it is a challenging problem to find a content that will be appealing to the users. Furthermore, the retrieval of multimedia contents, which can match users' current mood or affective state, can be of great interest. One approach to indexing multimedia contents is to determine the potential affective state, which they can induce in users. In this paper, multimedia content analysis is performed to extract affective audio and visual cues from different music video clips. Furthermore, several fusion techniques are used to combine the information extracted from the audio and video contents of music video clips. We show that using the proposed methodology, a relatively high performance (up to 90%) of affect recognition is obtained.
