The VAT: Enhancing Video Analysis

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The practice of extracting knowledge from large volumes of video data suffers from a problem of variety. Security, military, and commercial identification and retrieval are well-traveled paths for identifying very particular objects or people found in recorded footage, yet there are extremely few established technology solutions and use cases for understanding what large-scale video collections can help us discover about contemporary culture and history. This dearth is not due to a lack of imagination on the part of researchers; rather, we contend, in order to grow a common set of instruments, measures, and procedural methods, there is a need for a common gateway into content and analytics for cultural and historical experts to utilize. The Video Analysis Tableau (VAT), formerly the LSVA, is a research project aimed at establishing a software workbench for video analysis, annotation, and visualization, using both current and experimental discovery methods and built on the Medici framework/interface. The VAT employs a host of algorithms for machine reading, in addition to spaces for user generated tagging and annotation; it is currently being expanded into a gateway project in order to foster a strong community of practice that includes researchers in a variety of disciplines.
