FOOTAGE SEARCH OVERDRIVE – 2pm – 3pm EST
How Technology Brings New Joy and Clarity to Footage Discovery
Perhaps no area of search technology is as active today as footage search functionality. The Department of Commerce has devoted significant resources to develop search routines for visual materials that are comparable to our search for text. And semantic web platforms provide associations to resources that are not necessarily built into the database. Many of ACSIL’s members have introduced highly sophisticated search and discovery tools to assist those in need of footage. This panel will provide a bird’s eye view of best search practices and emerging technologies. We’ve gone far beyond “advanced search.” You’ll learn why in this session. Panelists to be announced.
