Multimedia Goes Big Data: Trends and Challenges

Max Mühlhäuser, Telecooperation Lab, Technische Universität Darmstadt, Germany

Ever more multimedia data gets produced, stored, and shared -- a well-known phenomenon and quite common for information technology, one might say. However, the dramatic speed of this development and the trend towards "everything online" result in "big (multimedia) data" and hence, in big challenges that require disruptive approaches.

For instance, while media creation is becoming ever easier and cheaper, even automatic, the input bandwidth of our brains remains quite fixed. Hence, selecting the most "relevant" media from an "exploding" pool resembles the search for the needle in the haystack - a typical "bit data" challenge.

The talk will discuss trends, challenges, and upcoming ideas and approaches in this context. The problem space will be structured according to an imaginary "processing pipeline" that starts from media capturing via networking and processing until presentation/consumption. Some nonfunctional aspects such as privacy will also be addressed.
