This chapter is about multimedia classification, a decision making task involving several types of data such as audio, image, video (time sequence of images), and text. Although other modalities, e.g., haptic data, may fall into the category of multimedia, we only discuss audio, visual, and text because they represent a broad spectrum of both human decision tasks and machine learning applications.
