Smart Content – Scenarios and Technologies for a Knowledge-based Audiovisual Archive
Georg Güntner, Tobias Bürger, Erich Gams (2005): Smart Content – Scenarios and Technologies for a Knowledge-based Audiovisual Archive In: Proceedings of EChallenges 2005
In our paper we present the intermediate results of a project aiming at the creation of a knowledge-based infrastructure for search and navigation in audiovisual repositories. The approach is based on highly automated media processing and is therefore specifically targeted to historically grown archives (broadcasters, universities, public and corporate media archives, etc.) lacking the time and/or the financial means to manually annotate their digital media assets. In the project a conceptual architecture was developed to meet the requirements of a set of knowledge-intensive user scenarios for the utilization of rich media content in the B2B and B2C areas. Pluggable RDF knowledge components act as a link between a semantic indexing and knowledge-based navigation.
