    Video management tools and techniques are based on pixels rather than perceived content. Thus, state-of-the-art video editing systems can easily manipulate such things as time codes and image frames, but they cannot "know," for example, what a basketball is. Our research addresses four areas of content-based video management.<> View full abstract»

    During a police investigation, officers often have to sort through hundreds of photographs to identify a suspect. To aid this task, we at the Institute of Systems Science developed and implemented a flexible database system that can retrieve faces using personal information, fuzzy and free-text descriptors, and classification trees.<> View full abstract»

    During preproduction, film and television companies consider visuals in deciding on cast, location, and special effects. Using telecommunications would allow these decision makers to confer at a distance, reducing travel and delays caused by shipping materials back and forth. To support preproduction, an interdisciplinary team developed a prototype computer supported cooperative work application, ... View full abstract»
