Czech title
CARETAKER - Technologie analýzy obsahu a vyhledávání pro získávání znalostí z velkých množství nahrávek

massive recording, content analysis, speech processing, video processing, awareness, knowledge representation, ontology


The CARETAKER project aims at studying, developing and assessing multimedia knowledgebased content analysis, knowledge extraction components, and metadata management sub-systems in the context of automated situation awareness, diagnosis and decision support. More precisely, CARETAKER will focus on the extraction of a structured knowledge from large multimedia collections recorded over networks of camera and microphones deployed in real sites. The produced audio-visual streams, in addition to surveillance and safety issues, could represent a useful source of information if stored and automatically analysed, in urban planning and resource optimisation, environment planning and disabled/elderly person monitoring for instance.
