We developed Name-It, a system that associates faces and names in news videos. It processes information from the videos and can infer possible name candidates for a given face or locate a face in news videos by name. To accomplish this task, the system takes a multimodal video analysis approach: face sequence extraction and similarity evaluation from videos, name extraction from transcripts, and video-caption recognition.
