MultimediaN Project N5 (MN-N5)

Welcome to the WIKI page of MultimediaNimage:External.png Project N5, Semantic Multimedia Access.

Summary in Dutch

MN5 intranet

The MN5 intranet contains the Project Overview for members.

Goal

MN-N5 develops access tools for professional usage of media content and common ('general public') usage of e-culture, suited for application in an ambient setting.

The scientific goal is to develop a search engine generator, such that the resulting search engines are specialised to the task and user context, optimised for various types of content, and integrate background knowledge like domain specific thesauri. The idea is to draft a declarative language to specify the resources and retrieval model at hand, and then generate a specific search engine from specifications in that language. The resulting prototype is applied to various academic evaluations as well as the data sets from our content partners.

Members

MN-N5 is managed by Franciska de Jongimage:External.png and Arjen P. de Vriesimage:External.png.

The research partners are CWIimage:External.png, UTimage:External.png, UvAimage:External.png, and Philips Natlabimage:External.png. The content partners are the Nederlands Instituut voor Beeld en Geluidimage:External.png, Van Dale Lexicografieimage:External.png and dbnlimage:External.png (De Bibliotheek voor de Nederlandse Letteren).

Links to some public demonstrators

(search for Dutch content only)

Met behulp van deze demonstrator kan gezocht worden in de toespraken van H.M. Koningin Wilhelmina die tijdens de Tweede Wereldoorlog door Radio Oranje zijn uitgezonden. De demo maakt cruciaal gebruik van alignment van spraak en transcripties. Deze demonstrator is stand gekomen in samenwerking tussen onderzoekers van MultimediaN, CATCH/Choral en het NIOD.
Zoeken naar fragmenten van het NOS-Journaal van de afgelopen 14 dagen. Deels gebaseerd op spraakherkenning. Ondersteunt ook zoeken via Google Maps.
Ontsluiting van het multimedia-archief Willem Frederik Hermans Instituut met behulp van spraakherkenning. Tot stand gekomen in samenwerking met dbnl.
