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.
