Unorganized media collections hinder consumers from fully experiencing and enjoying their visual media. User interfaces can mediate the results of automated indexing by presenting data and interactions that leverage the strengths of individual and combined algorithm results, supporting multifaceted browsing, and enabling user correction in a way that is not disruptive to the userspsila activities. We describe the semantic system demonstration framework (SSDF), a flexible and extensible framework for combining multiple semantic indexing algorithms for consumer photo and video clip collections into one integrated system. We also describe key features of Koi, an SSDF desktop client application with a user interface designed to mediate and leverage the intelligent indexing incorporated in the SSDF server. Together, Koi and SSDF empower users to experience their personal multimedia in novel and sophisticated ways.
