Labeling persons appearing in video frames with names detected from the video transcript helps improving the video content identification and search task. We develop a face naming method that learns from labeled and unlabeled examples using iterative label propagation in a graph of connected faces or name-face pairs. The advantage of this method is that it can use very few labeled data points and incorporate the unlabeled data points during the learning process. Anchor detection and metric learning for face classification techniques are incorporated into the label propagation process to help boosting the face naming performance. On BBC News videos, the label propagation algorithm yields better results than a Support Vector Machine classifier trained on the same labeled data.
