Workshop on Machine Learning for Streaming Media
at the WebConf 2023

Sunday, April 30, 2023

Streaming media have been seeing massive year of year growth in terms of consumption hours recently. For many people, streaming services have become part of everyday life and accessing and consuming media content via streaming is now the norm for people of all ages. Powered by Machine Learning (ML) algorithms, streaming services are becoming one the most visible and impactful applications of ML that directly interact with people and influence their lives.

Despite the rapid growth of streaming services, the research discussions around ML for streaming media remain fragmented across different conferences and workshops. Also, the gap between academic research and constraints and requirements in industry limits the broader impact of many contributions from academia. Therefore, we believe that there is an urgent need to: (i) build connections and bridge the gap by bringing together researchers and practitioners from both academia and industry working on these problems, (ii) attract ML researchers from other areas to streaming media problems, and (iii) bring up the pain points and battle scars in industry to which academia researchers can pay more attention.

With this motivation in mind, we are organizing a workshop on Machine Learning for Streaming Media in conjunction with the WebConf 2023. We invite researchers, practitioners, students, and faculty to join us in discussing challenges and machine learning solutions in this space. We also invite quality research contributions, including original research, preliminary research results, and proposals for new work, to be submitted. See the Call for Papers for more details.
