Why commonsense for video production?

In submission to ICIP 2002.


Video cameras are becoming cheap, small and ubiquitous. With advances in memory, cameras will increasingly be designed to be always ready, always recording. When cameras are always ready, how will videographers professional and/or amateur decide what to shoot, when to shoot and how to index their video material to best support their communication requirements? In this paper, we describe an approach and early experiments that use a commonsense database and reasoning techniques to support a partnership between the camera and videographer during video capture. We describe a new paradigm for producing commonsense video metadata and describe how it can have a positive impact on video content capture, representation, and presentation.
