Making video easier to search and find (PsysOrg)

“Imagine a computer system that can automatically search through videos of football matches and pull out all the shots on goal or all the fouls.

Creating the elements that make such a system possible is a key result from the IST BUSMAN project. The current generation of computer systems is excellent at searching for and manipulating text: as the spectacular success of Google has shown.

However, computers are now routinely used to store and process more than just text - videos of football matches for example. Handling multimedia content such as video footage is far harder than text where particular words and phrases can be searched for.”
