Xavier Bost


I am about to join Orkis SA as a Research Engineer in Multimedia Information Retrieval.

With a background in Humanities, I began taking interest in computer science when attempting to automate processes used in comparative and historical linguistics.

I graduated with a Bsc in Computer Science from Aix-Marseille University in distance learning and with a Msc in Computer Science from the University of Avignon.

I obtained my PhD at the Laboratoire Informatique d'Avignon, under the supervision of Georges Linarès (dir.), Damien Malinas and Serigne Gueye. My PhD thesis is about automatic video summarization, with a special focus on automatic summaries of TV series.
