Proceedings of the 2017 Conference on Empirical Methods in Natural Language Processing

Sports channel video portals offer an exciting domain for research on multimodal, multilingual analysis. We present methods addressing the problem of automatic video highlight prediction based on joint visual features and textual analysis of the real-world audience discourse with complex slang, in both English and traditional Chinese. We present a novel dataset based on League of Legends championships recorded from North American and Taiwanese channels (will be released for further research), and demonstrate strong results on these using multimodal, character-level CNN-RNN model architectures.
