Abstract: When querying a news video archive, the users are interested in retrieving precise answers in the form of a summary that best answers the query. However, current video retrieval systems, including the search engines on the web, are designed to retrieve documents instead of precise answers. This research explores the use of question answering (QA) techniques to support personalized news video retrieval. Users interact with our system, VideoQA, using short natural language questions with implicit constraints on contents, context, duration, and genre of expected videos. VideoQA returns short precise news video summaries as answers. The main contributions of this research are: (a) the extension of QA technology to support QA in news video; and (b) the use of multi-modal features, including visual, audio, textual, and external resources, to help correct speech recognition errors and to perform precise question answering. The system has been tested on 7 days of news video and has been found to be effective.
