Projects
Connecting Your World, The need to be connected is greater than ever, and AT&T Researchers are creating new ways for people to connect with one another and with their environments, whether it's their home, office, or car.

Content Acquisition Processing, Monitoring, and Forensics for AT&T Services (CONSENT), CONSENT provides a platform for detection and analysis of content for security and quality assurance.

Content Augmenting Media (CAM), Leverage multimedia metadata to provide live alerts and intelligent content consumption.

Content-Based Copy Detection, Content-based Copy Detection is an enabling technology to discover repeated content and events in a large-scale content database.

Enhanced Indexing and Representation with Vision-Based Biometrics, Leveraging visual biometrics for indexing and representations of content for retrieval and verification.

iMIRACLE - Content Retrieval on Mobile Devices with Speech, iMIRACLE uses large vocabulary speech recognition for content retrieval with metadata words (titles, genre, channels, etc.) and content words that occur in recorded programs.

MIRACLE and the Content Analysis Engine (CAE), The Multimedia Information Retrieval by Content (MIRACLE) project encompasses the technologies for video indexing, analysis, and retrieval with audio, textual, and visual content information.

VidCat - Simplified Personal Photo and Video Managmenet, VidCat permits simplified personal photo and video management (i.e. a Video Catalog) from a webpage or your favorite mobile device.

Video - Content Delivery and Consumption, A background on the delivery and consumption of video and multimedia and references to projects within the AT&T Video and Multimedia Technologies and Services Research Department.

Video - Indexing and Representation (Metadata), Video and multimedia indexing and representations (i.e. metadata), their production, and use. Links to projects within the AT&T Video and Multimedia Technologies and Services Research Department.

Video and Multimedia Technologies Research, The AT&T Video and Multimedia Technologies Research Department strives to acquire multimedia and video for indexing,retrieval,and consumption with textual,semantic,and visual modalities.

Visual API - Visual Intelligence for your Applications, The Visual API provides Visual Intelligence to applications and developers through REST-based APIs powered by the AT&T Developer Program.

Visual Semantics for Intuitive Mid-Level Representations, Represent content with mid-level visual semantics for retrieval, filtering, and tagging.
