    Target users and customers

    The targeted users and customers are the multimedia industry actors, and all academic or industrial laboratories interested in video analysis.

    Application sectors

    • Multi-media document processing
    • Video indexing
     
    Q-tech-technicolor-socder event detection_new
    Automatically detects events/actions of interest in a soccer match Read more/1}
     

    Target users and customers

    All content providers may be interested by the soccer event detection technology to manage efficiently their content database. When repurposing applications are targeted, these same providers will see an interest in having this module to help automatically detect events of interest.

    The soccer event detection module may also be used by end users to manage their own content at home.

    Application sectors

    • Content structuring & browsing: Knowing where actions of interest are in a soccer match allows structuring of soccer matches. It also gives direct access to events, thus enabling a non linear browsing in the document.
    • Content retrieval: By adding additional metadata to content (ie. timecodes of events), the module finds a direct application in the context of content retrieval in video databases.
    • Content repurposing: Knowing where the events are in a soccer match allows to repurpose this content for other broadcasting channels such as the internet or portable devices. In the later case, building summary from the detected events is of interest for sending this new repurposed content to mobile phones.
     
  • Target users and customers

    Question-answering is an end-user application. The purpose is to go beyond the traditional way of retrieving information through search engines. Our system is interactive, with both a speech (phone or microphone) and text (web) interface.

    Application sectors

    QA system can be viewed as a direct extension of search engines. They allow a user to ask questions in natural language.

    ircammusicgenre
    Ircammusicgenre and Ircammusicmood softwares estimate automatically the belonging of a music track to a set of music genre (electronica, jazz, pop/rock…) and music mood classes (positive, sad, powerful, calming…) Read more
     

    Target users and customers

    Classification of music items are generally primarily based on their belonging to a music genre: electronica, jazz, pop/ rock… However, the editorial meta-data related to the genre are generally only accessible at the artist level (the whole set of music tracks produced by one artist will belong to the same music genre whatever the tracks content). Ircammusicgenre is a software which allows the automatic estimation of the belonging of a music track to music genres. The list of music genres considered by the software can be pre-determined by Ircam (electronica, jazz, pop/rock…) or can be adapted to categories relevant to the partner, provided a sufficient number of sound examples per category.

    Ircammusicgenre also allows to perform multi-labeling of a music track, i.e. assigning a set of genre labels instead of a single genre. In this case, a weighting is assigned to each estimated label.

    Ircammusicmood a software which allows the automatic estimate of the music mood of has music track to music mood. Music mood report to the “mood” that a track suggests: positive, sad, powerful, calming…

    As for the music genre, the list can be predetermined by Ircam or discussed with the partner. Multi-labels can also be applied to the music mood classification.

    Application sectors

    • Online music providers
    • Online music portals
     
    ircamchord-1
    Ircamchord software estimates automatically the temporal succession of music chords (C-Major, C-minor, …) that makes up a piece of music. Read more
     

    Target users and customers

    One of the most important perceptual aspects of popular music is the succession of chords over time. Two tracks based on the same chord succession are perceived very similar and sometimes indicate a cover-version of the same composition. Automatic estimation of chord succession can therefore be used to perform search by similarity and play-list generation.
    It can therefore benefit to music providers, online music portals.

    Chord notation is also very popular for beginner musicians (a very large amount of guitar tabs are accessible and used over the web). Estimating automatically the chord succession of a given track can therefore be beneficial for personal users through the inclusion of the technology in local software.

    Application sectors

    • Online music providers
    • Online music portals
    • Music players developers
    • Music software developers
     
    visuel KIT_speech to text
    Transcription of human speech into written word sequences read more
     

    Target users and customers

    Companies who want to integrate the transcription of human speech into their products.

    Application sectors

    Speech-to-Text technology is key to indexing multimedia content as it is found in multimedia databases or in video and audio collections on the World Wide Web, and to make it searchable by human queries. In addition, it offers a natural interface for submitting and executing queries.

    This technology is further part of speech-translation services. In combination with machine translation technology, it is possible to design machines that take human speech as input and translate it into a new language. This can be used to enable human-to-human combination across the language barrier or to access languages in a cross-lingual way.
