Ubiquitous Access to Digital Cultural Heritage

Journal on Computing and Cultural Heritage (JOCCH) - Special Issue on Digital Infrastructure for Cultural Heritage, Part 1, Roberto Scopign, ACM, New York, NY, US, 2017

The digitization initiatives in the past decades have led to a tremendous increase in digitized objects in the cultural heritagedomain. Although digitally available, these objects are often not easily accessible for interested users because of the distributedallocation of the content in different repositories and the variety in data structure and standards. When users search for culturalcontent, they first need to identify the specific repository and then need to know how to search within this platform (e.g., usageof specific vocabulary). The goal of the EEXCESS project is to design and implement an infrastructure that enables ubiquitousaccess to digital cultural heritage content. Cultural content should be made available in the channels that users habituallyvisit and be tailored to their current context without the need to manually search multiple portals or content repositories. Torealize this goal, open-source software components and services have been developed that can either be used as an integratedinfrastructure or as modular components suitable to be integrated in other products and services. The EEXCESS modules andcomponents comprise (i) Web-based context detection, (ii) information retrieval-based, federated content aggregation, (iii) meta-data definition and mapping, and (iv) a component responsible for privacy preservation. Various applications have been realizedbased on these components that bring cultural content to the user in content consumption and content creation scenarios. Forexample, content consumption is realized by a browser extension generating automatic search queries from the current pagecontext and the focus paragraph and presenting related results aggregated from different data providers. A Google Docs add-onallows retrieval of relevant content aggregated from multiple data providers while collaboratively writing a document. Theserelevant resources then can be included in the current document either as citation, an image, or a link (with preview) withouthaving to leave disrupt the current writing task for an explicit search in various content providers’ portals.

Content-based Video Retrieval and Summarization using MPEG-7

Proceedings of Electronic Imaging 2004, Internet Imaging V, San Jose, CA, USA, 2004

Retrieval in current multimedia databases is usually limited to browsing and searching based on low-level visual features and explicit textual descriptors. Semantic aspects of visual information are mainly described in full text attributes or mapped onto specialized, application specific description schemes. Result lists of queries are commonly represented by textual descriptions and single key frames. This approach is valid for text documents and images, but is often insufficient to represent video content in a meaningful way. In this paper we present a multimedia retrieval framework focusing on video objects, which fully relies on the MPEG-7 standard as information base. It provides a content-based retrieval interface which uses hierarchical content-based video summaries to allow for quick viewing and browsing through search results even on bandwidth limited Web applications. Additionally semantic meaning about video content can be annotated based on domain specific ontologies, enabling a more targeted search for content. Our experiences and results with these techniques will be discussed in this paper.
