Challenges in Multimodal Data Fusion

Abstract : In various disciplines, information about the same phenomenon can be acquired from different types of detectors, at different conditions, different observations times, in multiple experiments or subjects, etc. We use the term "modality" to denote each such type of acquisition framework. Due to the rich characteristics of natural phenomena, as well as of the environments in which they occur, it is rare that a single modality can provide complete knowledge of the phenomenon of interest. The increasing availability of several modalities at once introduces new degrees of freedom, which raise questions beyond those related to exploiting each modality separately. It is the aim of this paper to evoke and promote various challenges in multimodal data fusion at the conceptual level, without focusing on any specific model, method or application.
