[Notes] Lynda Hardman at #SSSW2013


Users (consumers?):

More data than just what you seen in the media (cue my Venn diagram).

Plus, eg. paintings - lots of 'cultural baggage'.

Care more about the story than the media.
Interpretation by end users. Hopefully message that the author intended.

Meaning of combination of assets.
eg. Exhibition of artists work.

Interacting further with the media.

(SW and multimedia community need to work together).

-> Raphael Troncy on Friday - attaching semantics to multimedia on the Web.

Need mechanisms:

Workflow for multimedia applications

Heard of MPEG-7? Don't bother.. very much from a media algorithms perspective.


Canonical processes overview...

There's a paper.

CeWe photobook - automatic selection, sorting and ordering of photos.
Context (timestamp, tags) analysis and content (colours, edges) analysis.

Things from these you want to represent your digital system (ie with LOD):

COMM - Core Ontology for Multimedia.

Premediate and construct message - human parts, she doesn't expect them to be digitised any time soon.

Using Semantics to create stories with media

Can we link media assets to existing linked data and use this to improve presentation?

How can annotations help?

Vox Populi (PhD project)

Traditionally video documentary is a set of shots decided by director/editor.
Annotating video material and showing what the user asks to see.


Annotations for these documentary clips:

Automatically generated coherant story.

Vox Populi has (not for human consumption) GUI for querying annotated video content.

User can determine subject and bias of presentation.
Documentary maker can just add in new videos and new annotations to easily generate new sequence options.

User informatio needs - Ana Carina Palumbo

Linked TV. Enhancing experience of watching TV. What users need to make decisions / inform opinions.

Experiment - oil worth the risk?

Published at EuroITV.



Hand annotations are error prone - how to validate?
Media stuff - there can be uncertainty, people don't always care.

Motivating researchers to annotate...
Make a game.

Store whole video or segements?
W3C fragment identification standards - timestamps via URLs.
