mixMeet

At FXPAL, we build and evaluate systems that make multimedia content easier to capture, access, and manipulate. In the Interactive Media group we are currently focusing on remote work and distributed meetings in particular. On one hand, meetings can be inefficient at best and a flat-out boring, waste-of-time at worst. However, there are some key […] → Read More: mixMeet

on automation and tacit knowledge

We hear a lot about how computers are replacing even white collar jobs. Unfortunately, often left behind when automating these kinds of processes is tacit knowledge that, while perhaps not strictly necessary to generate a solution, can nonetheless improve results. In particular, many professionals rely upon years of experience to guide designs in ways that […] → Read More: on automation and tacit knowledge

video text retouch

Several of us just returned from ACM UIST 2014 where we presented some new work as part of the cemint project.  One vision of the cemint project is to build applications for multimedia content manipulation and reuse that are as powerful as their analogues for text content.  We are working towards this goal by exploiting two key tools.  First, we […] → Read More: video text retouch

Machine-Learning Maestro Michael Jordan on the Delusions of Big Data and Other Huge Engineering Efforts

Big-data boondoggles and brain-inspired chips are just two of the things we’re really getting wrong The overeager adoption of big data is likely to result in catastrophes of analysis comparable to a national epidemic of collapsing bridges. Hardware d… → Read More: Machine-Learning Maestro Michael Jordan on the Delusions of Big Data and Other Huge Engineering Efforts

Why training and review (partly) break control sets

A technology-assisted review (TAR) process frequently begins with the creation of a control set—a set of documents randomly sampled from the collection, and coded by a human expert for relevance. The control set can then be used to estimate the richness (proportion relevant) of the collection, and also to gauge the effectiveness of a predictive […] → Read More: Why training and review (partly) break control sets
