@ the metro:mobility Seminar today

May 30, 2005

Currently at the metro:mobility Seminar in Sydney today.

metro:mobility is a program of events about new opportunities in mobile media.

One of the interesting presenters was by Dr Silvia Pfeiffer of the Commonwealth Scientific & Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) which is Australia’s leading government run scientific institute.

Dr Pfeiffer showed of some of the work they are currently involved in regarding the annotation & search of hosted digital media. The presentation is interesting due to their work involving mobile devices.

Their research is about the creation, editing and search of annotated digital media and how it is accessed by different devices. The work is based on open standards too which is excellent as it uses XML as native code

Head over to their site for access to the free Firefox browser plugin (no IE version!?!?!) and mobile client.

Annodex – Open standards for annotating and indexing networked media

Something Google needs to look at for their video hosting.
