2020 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper we introduce a scalable automated visual recognition pipeline for discovering political meme genres of diverse appearance.  ...  A significant challenge in automatic meme analysis has been the development of a strategy to match memes from within a single genre when the appearances of the images vary.  ...  Additionally Vitor Albiero was a great help with constructing several of the charts.  ...

Visual memes are extracted by scalable detection algorithms that we develop, with high accuracy. We further augment visual memes with text, via a statistical model of latent topics.  ...  The proposed joint statistical model of visual memes and words outperforms an alternative concurrence model, with an average error of 2% for predicting meme volume and 17% for predicting meme lifespan.  ...  These observations suggest that it is the traditional new media who seem to have driven most content on this topic, and that serendipitous discovery of novel content does also exist, but has less diversity  ...
