TRECVID 2020: A comprehensive campaign for evaluating video retrieval tasks across multiple application domains

The TREC Video Retrieval Evaluation (TRECVID) is a TREC-style video analysis and retrieval evaluation with the goal of promoting progress in research and development of content-based exploitation and retrieval of information from digital video via open, metrics-based evaluation. Over the last twenty years this effort has yielded a better understanding of how systems can effectively accomplish such processing and how one can reliably benchmark their performance. TRECVID has been funded by NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) and other US government agencies. In addition, many organizations and individuals worldwide contribute significant time and effort. TRECVID 2020 represented a continuation of four tasks and the addition of two new tasks. In total, 29 teams from various research organizations worldwide completed one or more of the following six tasks: 1. Ad-hoc Video Search (AVS), 2. Instance Search (INS), 3. Disaster Scene Description and Indexing (DSDI), 4. Video to Text Description (VTT), 5. Activities in Extended Video (ActEV), 6. Video Summarization (VSUM). This paper is an introduction to the evaluation framework, tasks, data, and measures used in the evaluation campaign.
