1 5th FP7 Networked Media Concertation Meeting, Brussels 3-4 February 2010 A unIfied framework for multimodal content SEARCH Short Project Overview

2 5th FP7 Networked Media Concertation Meeting, Brussels 3-4 February 2010 What is STREP I-SEARCH? IST-STREP Project ID , The mission To provide a novel unified framework for multimodal content indexing, sharing, search and retrieval. To handle specific types of multimedia and multimodal content (text, 2D image, sketch, video, 3D objects and audio) along with real world and emotional information. To develop a highly user-centric search-engine (only the content of interest will be delivered to the end-users). To optimally present the retrieved results to the user via novel visualization schemes. To dynamically adapt the search engine to end-users device (varying from a simple mobile phone to a high-performance PC).

3 5th FP7 Networked Media Concertation Meeting, Brussels 3-4 February 2010 What is STREP I-SEARCH? Objectives Research and development of an innovative Rich Unified Content Description (RUCoD). Development of intelligent content interaction mechanisms so that only the content of interest will be delivered to the users. Provide a novel way for presentation of the multimodal data retrieved by the search engine, by utilizing visual analytics technologies.

4 5th FP7 Networked Media Concertation Meeting, Brussels 3-4 February 2010 What is STREP I-SEARCH? Main Objective The aim of the I-SEARCH project is the development of the first search engine able to handle multimedia and multimodal content (text, 2D image, sketch, video, 3D objects, audio and combination of the above), which can be used as queries and retrieve any available relevant content of any of the aforementioned types.

5 5th FP7 Networked Media Concertation Meeting, Brussels 3-4 February 2010 What is STREP I-SEARCH? Objective 1 Research and development of an innovative Rich Unified Content Description (RUCoD). RUCoD: a multi-layered structure (from low-level to high-level descriptors) that integrates the following types of information: Geometrical, Topological, Temporal, Multisensory Multimodal interaction information Meta-tags connected with the intrinsic properties of the content (static features such as shape, colour, texture, dimension, etc.), Dynamic properties (temporal descriptors, how it behaves, in which activities it is normally used, who uses it, etc.), Non-verbal expressive and emotional descriptors, Social descriptors (how content is related to users, social/collaborative use of the content), content descriptors as for the behaviour of the humans as for how content is intended to be elaborated and manipulated, individually or socially. Real-world data descriptors Development of novel multimodal annotation propagation algorithms

6 5th FP7 Networked Media Concertation Meeting, Brussels 3-4 February 2010 What is STREP I-SEARCH? Objective 2 Development of intelligent content interaction mechanisms so that only the content of interest will be delivered to the users. Natural, expressive and multimodal interfaces. Personal and social-based relevance (incl. recommendation-based) feedback mechanisms. Social and collaborative behaviour of users will be exploited at best Users better express what they want to retrieve.

7 5th FP7 Networked Media Concertation Meeting, Brussels 3-4 February 2010 What is STREP I-SEARCH? Objective 3 Provide a novel way for presentation of the multimodal data retrieved by the search engine, using Visual Analytics technologies Advanced reasoning algorithms to drive the visualisation of the I-SEARCH RuCoD compliant content. Visual Analytics provide presentation of the search results in the optimal way Users find the result that optimally match their query in a fast and efficient way.

8 5th FP7 Networked Media Concertation Meeting, Brussels 3-4 February 2010 I-SEARCH Innovation Innovation Novel Rich Unified Content Description (RUCoD) that integrates the following features: Intrinsic properties (low-level features) of the multimedia content types. Supported content (text, 2D image, sketch, video, 3D objects, audio and combination of the above) as well as several properties of each type (e.g. shape, colour, texture, dimension Non-verbal expressive and emotional descriptors Social descriptors Enrichment of RUCoD with additional contextual information Novel multimodal annotation propagation mechanism based on RUCoD Novel multimodal interaction mechanisms That can capture the emotional expressive and social information conveyed by both individual and groups of expert and non-expert users Novel RUCoD data representations and transformations in order to support conversion of all types of conflicting and dynamic data in ways that support visualization and analysis. Novel techniques for the analysis and presentation of retrieved multimedia content utilizing Visual Analytics technologies Novel business cases clearly illustrating the contribution of I-SEARCH

9 5th FP7 Networked Media Concertation Meeting, Brussels 3-4 February 2010 I-Search Use Cases Use Case 1: Search for music content Users search the ANSC ethnomusicological multimedia digital archives utilising the novel multimodal search and retrieval framework proposed by I-SEARCH. Traditional search of music archives usually include descriptive methods (mainly textual: for example author, title, etc.). In this scenario, several querying modalities will be utilised, such as music, image or video, as well as user-related information including gesture and emotional cues. The basic idea is to use more natural and expressive interfaces for narrowing and adapting the searching experience to what the user wants. In order to realise multimodal search and retrieval, A RUCoD representation of the ANSC content will be available.

10 5th FP7 Networked Media Concertation Meeting, Brussels 3-4 February 2010 I-SEARCH Use Cases Use Case 2: Search and retrieval of 3D furniture models/game models In the area of furniture data modelling, content is available in explicit catalogues comprising 3D (and 2D) data models. Using I-SEARCH user will be to perform content-based search using as input relevant content (photos, 3D models, videos). For all the available multimedia content stored in furniture catalogues, the RUCoD description will be generated and stored along with the content. This uniform content description will enable efficient search and retrieval of relevant content irrespective of the query input type. Additional input, related to real-world information, such as location of the user, can be also provided.

11 5th FP7 Networked Media Concertation Meeting, Brussels 3-4 February 2010 I-SEARCH Use Cases Use Case 3: Search and Retrieval of 3D Game Models Customization of 3D video games both on home entertainment systems (such as personal computers and video game consoles) and on emerging mobile entertainment platforms (like mobile phones, handheld video games and PDAs) Retrieval and the exchange of game avatars, objects, levels and in general any multimedia object that could be added in a game. The user can use as queries: 3D objects, such as avatars, vehicles, scenes or other artefacts 2D photos (in the sense of snapshots) or videos of items or avatars of online players The retrieved results may include: Other 3D objects, avatars, vehicles, scenes Advanced non-geometric information such as commercial information and related products

18 5th FP7 Networked Media Concertation Meeting, Brussels 3-4 February 2010 Potential technical interactions between Projects I-Search fits mainly to the A/V search cluster and could collaborate with the following projects: P2P-Next –A common issue for exploitation between P2P-Next and I-Search is the end user experience on various terminals. VirtualLife –VirtualLife can provide 3D material to I-Search. PetaMedia –The focus of PetaMedia on multimedia content analysis and social peer- to-peer networks can be useful for I-Search for developing both the low level content descriptors as well as in defining the social descriptors. COAST –I-Search could use the CCN approach which will be developed in COAST so as to test the search efficiency in these networks.
