The UMONS Research Center in Information Technologies takes part in the LinkedTV european research project, starting in October 2011.
LinkedTV is supported under the Networked Media and Search Systems strategic objective of the 7th framework program for research of the European Union.
The project aims to provide a novel practical approach to Networked Media based on four phases: annotation, interlinking, retrieval, and presentation.
LinkedTV will allow to seamlessly connect multimedia content on the Web by integrating networked media analysis, personalization and presentation technologies within an integrated and coherent framework.
UMONS is involved in novel approaches for gathering user preferences through behavior analysis, and for presentation interfaces facilitating content and video search. The LinkedTV consortium is composed of twelve organizations, and it lead by Fraunhofer IAIS. More information coming soon at http://www.linkedtv.eu
