technology [index] | Informedia

[This was one of the projects that cooperated with the NMIS project.]

The overarching goal of the Informedia initiatives is to achieve machine understanding of video and film media, including all aspects of search, retrieval, visualization and summarization in both contemporaneous and archival content collections.
 
The base technology developed under Informedia-I combines speech, image and natural language understanding to automatically transcribe, segment and index linear video for intelligent search and image retrieval. Informedia-II seeks to improve the dynamic extraction, summarization, visualization, and presentation of distributed video, automatically producing "collages" and "auto-documentaries" that summarize documents from text, images, audio and video into one single abstraction.
