YFCC100M: The New Data in Multimedia Research from CACM on Vimeo.

What kind of research can you do with 100 million pieces of multimedia content? To find out, our Human-Computer Interaction group released the Yahoo Flickr Creative Commons 100 Million (YFCC100M) dataset in June of 2014 through our Webscope data sharing program. The release later became the seed for an even larger scientific community-driven effort known as the Multimedia Commons initiative, which aims to open and share community-contributed dataset features and ground truth annotations. This larger effort is featured in the February edition of the Communications of the ACM magazine along with this short video describing the project.
