Abstract: The popularity of digital cameras and smartphones has brought a flourish of personal photos and videos, and led to profound changes in both research and development. This talk will review my experience on this topic in the past ten years, including winning ImageNet LSVRC and developing the photo2fashion search at Yahoo!. We will especially go through our recent project of question answering for personal albums. This talk will also summarize research lessons from big companies as well as startup’s viewpoints, and discuss interesting directions in the future.
