Creation of a flexibly searchable streaming media archive of contemporary and modern art theory and practice

Principal Investigator: Professor Robert Zimmer, Goldsmiths College University of London

We will create an intelligent system for archiving and retrieving video and audio recordings of events about contemporary and modern art, in the first instance, focusing on a select portion of the Tate’s existing Online Event Archive.

The system will be able to extract (from long recordings) only those sections that are relevant to a user’s current interest. Furthermore, the system will be able to personally assist users, directing and guiding the search/research activity, with ‘intelligent’ suggestions.

We will also focus on semi-automatic indexing of the material. The system will be extendable and reusable for other collections.
