Internet platforms provide new ways for people to share experiences, generating massive amounts of data related to various real-world concepts. In this paper, we present an event detection framework to discover real-world events from multiple data domains, including online news media and social media. As multi-domain data possess multiple data views that are heterogeneous, initial dictionaries consisting of labeled data samples are exploited to align the multi-view data. Furthermore, a shared multi-view data representation (SMDR) model is devised, which learns underlying and intrinsic structures shared among the data views by considering the structures underlying the data, data variations, and informativeness of dictionaries. SMDR incorpvarious constraints in the objective function, including shared representation, low-rank, local invariance, reconstruction error, and dictionary independence constraints. Given the data representations achieved by SMDR, class-wise residual models are designed to discover the events underlying the data based on the reconstruction residuals. Extensive experiments conducted on two real-world event detection datasets, i.e., Multi-domain and Multi-modality Event Detection dataset, and MediaEval Social Event Detection 2014 dataset, indicating the effectiveness of the proposed approaches.
