Abstract: The Informedia Digital Video Library project is a research initiative at Carnegie Mellon University funded by the NSF, DARPA, NASA and others that studies how multimedia digital libraries can be established and used. The Informedia project has pioneered new approaches for automated video and audio indexing, navigaiton, visualization, search and retrieval and embedded them in a system for use in education, information and entertainment environments. Intelligent, automatic mechanisms are being developed to populate the library. Research in the areas of speech recognition, image understanding, and natural language processing supports the automatic preparation of diverse media for full-content and knowledge based search and retrieval.
