Project description

The MIA-project aims at true multi-media analysis of multimedia documents composed of digital text, picture and/or video. At the confluence of text-, picture- and video-analysis, data visualization, and multimedia data storage, the MIA - project aims to provide the technology for the digital library age. The data repositories of the MIA - project are large company based archives. Furthermore, we aim to provide content-specific services to the World Wide Web, motivated by the new possibilities offered by the Internet-2 capacity. The MIA-project is funded by the Dutch government, the University of Amsterdam, The Center for Mathematics and Computer Science, and leading Dutch industries. The project is located in the WTCW, the foothold of the trans-atlantic Internet connection.
