Designing an Interactive, Browsable Archive of Video-based Digital Estates

From The Theme
MEMORY, ESTATE AND LEGACIES IN A DIGITAL WORLD

WHAT IF
What if we could create a dynamic and interactive digital archive that allows users to fluidly browse, skim and annotate its various resources?



WHAT WE SET OUT TO DO
We set out to develop semi-automated tools for converting a multi-media academic collection (the Englebart Collection at Stanford University) into a dynamic and interactive digital archive. These tools will combine machine and human driven approaches for collecting, processing and presenting data. They will support powerful and agile video content navigation, enable integration with other media content, and provide options for user interaction and the user driven creation of high quality meta data.

PEOPLE BEHIND THE PROJECT
Maneesh Agrawala is a Professor of Computer Science and Director of the Brown Institute for Media Innovation at Stanford University. He works on computer graphics, human computer interaction and visualization. His focus is on investigating how cognitive design principles can be used to improve the effectiveness of audio/visual media. The goals of this work are to discover the design principles and then instantiate them in both interactive and automated design tools.

Juho Kim is an Assistant Professor in the School of Computing at KAIST. His research interests lie in human-computer interaction, learning at scale, crowdsourcing, and video interfaces. He builds interactive systems powered by large-scale data from users, in which users’ natural and incentivized activities dynamically improve content, interaction, and experience. He is a recipient of eight paper awards from ACM CHI, ACM Learning at Scale, and AAAI HCOMP, and the Samsung Fellowship.
