MKLab had a very successful participation in the 2015 edition of the MediaEval benchmarking activity that took place in Wurzen, Germany on 14-15 September. The team participated in four tasks: Placing, Diverse Social Image Retrieval, Verifying Multimedia Use, and Synchronization of Multi-User Event Media, with the last two tasks being co-organized by members of the lab. The team achieved impressive results in two of the tasks, namely the Placing Task, in which it achieved the best performance, being the only participation to outperform the system provided by the organizers, and in the Diverse Social Image Retrieval task, where the team achieved the best performance in the single-topic queries, and the second best performance overall.
