Description

Media for Research, Research for Media

Interested in what AI will do for the media industry, or what the media industry wants from AI? In particular, what media metadata should be automatically extracted, supporting workflows and search?

Join us for refreshments and discussion on how media scientists and media professionals can work together to ensure the most effective and relevant tools become available.

The field of “Deep Learning” is impacting our everyday lives, from “Google Translate” to Netflix viewing recommendations. This type of AI (Artificial Intelligence) allows computers to learn in the same way as humans: by being exposed to a range of experience and information, and naturally deriving meaning. But, just like young humans, Deep Learning Neural Networks (DNNs for short) need help gathering information and checking their interpretations are correct. Once a reliable set of data – “ground truth” – is available with sufficient quantity and quality, computers can learn!

The “Media for Research, Research for Media” event illustrates example new technologies coming from research, outlines entertainment industry standards and linked data approaches, and introduces the concept of a new "tools for media" exchange, helping to build 'ground truth' for the benefit of researchers and media alike.

Delivering professional-quality results relies on professional-quality data availability. Entertainment industry linked data such as EIDR (Entertainment ID Registry) is discussed with examples of use. Automated recognition of unique content using deep learning is discussed, along with automated tagging technology.
