Program Information

IARPA Day Poster

Massive numbers of video clips are generated daily on many types of consumer electronics and uploaded to the internet. In contrast to videos that are produced for broadcast or from planned surveillance, the "unconstrained" video clips produced by anyone who has a digital camera present a significant challenge for manual as well as automated analysis.

The Aladdin Video Program seeks to combine the state-of-the-art in video extraction, audio extraction, knowledge representation, and search technologies in a revolutionary way to create a fast, accurate, robust, and extensible technology that supports the multimedia analytic needs of the future.
