NewsHistory: New Video Search Technology From German Research Organization
From Fraunhofer Research News:
Anyone who has visited one of the big online video portals or TV broadcasters’ media libraries to search for a video clip is already familiar with the search engines tasked with seeking out and flagging video footage. However, these engines have their weaknesses. Their results are based on automatic search algorithms that often go by text-based information alone. Although they can be used to locate and identify videos, a comparison of individual sequences is still very difficult. To make search engines even smarter, the Fraunhofer Institute for Digital Media Technology IDMT in Ilmenau has developed a piece of software called “NewsHistory” that will now make full use of user knowledge as well.
