|Prash Mahendrarajah CAST Project Manager (Home Office Centre for Applied Science and Technology). The talk will deal with Video Analytics for end user requirements and an update to iLIDS.
|Suzanne Little (Dublin City University, Ireland). The EU SAVASA Project.
This project proposes the creation of a video archive search platform that allows authorised users to perform semantic queries over various remote and non-interoperable video archives. The project will exploit the current trends in computer vision, video retrieval and semantic video analysis. It is also a goal of the project to ensure that its results can be deployed in distributed systems and as software services. The goal of the SAVASA project is to create a common platform that provides for the decoupling of CCTV and Video Archive installations from technologies that are generally proprietary and based on diverse technical principles. The project will be rooted in a detailed analysis of end-user partners' requirements, with respect to how we may confront both their current and near-future technical barriers.
