Quaero @ FUTUR EN SEINE at the Village des Innovations

Among the results of Quaero, the consortium is happy to present two interactive demonstrations which correspond best to the nature of the event “Futur en Seine” and which involve several actors of Quaero, thus underlining the strongly collaboratif character of the program. Presented at the 104, in Paris, during this festival on digital creation, these two demonstrations were presented to more than 700 people during four days.
The demos:

 

MuMa: the Music Mashup (Exalead – Rémi Landais – Arthur Lenoir – Marie-Cécile Huet)

MuMa (Mashup Music) is a search engine developed by Exalead, dedicated to music. It includes a search mode by chords enabled by  the use of an external midi keyboard. MuMa integrates technologies of IRCAM, Telecom ParisTech and the broadcasted audio bases of Yacast.
The "MuMa is on Stage" prototype works within a website, available at this address: http://muma.labs.exalead.com

 

Sunday musicians, accomplished artists, experienced music-lovers, groupies in fury, or wild fans... Imagine all the universe of music on a single website. You have a tune in mind? You’re looking for information about an artist? You want to attend one of his concerts? Muma collects Tweeter flows, Facebook news or information in real time, from the specialized sites... Tinkle, click, swing... And listen!

 

Interactive Search for persons in video sequences ( Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) – Hazim Kemal Ekenel – Martin Bäuml)

This demonstration shows the possibilities offered by fast recognition of faces. The user is invited to use a database of video sequences recorded during the event. Thanks to an interactive system, he activates automatically the search process, based on automatic analysis of the face and he gathers sequences in which the face appears.

This technology is also used in a scene search application, which enables the retrieval of scenes containing ones favorite actors within various series or movies where they perform. For more information, see following link:
