Adding Meaning and Context to Visual Media

Mar 15, 2017

12:30pm – 1:30pm CT

The explosion of visual media requires new thinking about how to understand its context and meaning. We’re seeing great strides in image recognition software, but this can only solve part of the problem. It’s essential to include the intent of the creator (why did I shoot and send this photo?) and the circumstances at the time (what is happening nearby?) along with curation practices.

Join the speakers as they present interlocking perspectives on adding meaning to visual media programmatically – combining an Internet of Events object model informed by external data, computer-vision and human-assisted curation.
