Creation of a flexibly searchable streaming media archive of contemporary and modern art theory and practice

Lead Research Organisation: Goldsmiths College
Department Name: Computing Department

Abstract

We will create an intelligent system for archiving and retrieving video and audio recordings of events about contemporary and modern art, in the first instance, focussing on a select portion of Tate's existing Online Event Archive.

The system will be able to extract (from long recordings) only those sections that are relevant to a user's current interest. Furthermore, the system will be able to personally assistant users, directing and guiding the search/research activity, with 'intelligent' suggestions.

We will also focus on semi-automatic indexing of the material. The system will be extendable and reusable for other collections.
