Project Name: MultiModal Meeting Manager

Abbreviation: M4

Start date: March 1, 2002

End date: February 28, 2005

Project Description:
This project is about processing meetings held in a room equipped with multimode sensors. The overall objective is the construction of a demonstration system to enable the offline structuring, browsing and querying of an archive of meetings. The project will include the design, collection and annotation of a multimode meetings database, the processing of audio/video streams and the integration and structuring of these streams using the outputs of various recognisers and analysers. We assume the availability of textual side information (e.g., an agenda), which enables the application of some useful constraints. The expected results of the project include a demonstrator system, and advances in models and algorithms for multimode recognition, integration and information access.

Project Funding

M4 is funded by Information Society Technologies in the Sixth Framework Programme of the European Commission.
