Creating object-based experiences in the real world | Technical Papers | IBC - 0 views

  •  
    "The move towards end-to-end IP between media producers and audiences will make new broadcasting systems vastly more agnostic to data formats and to diverse sets of consumption and production devices.

    In this world, object-based media becomes increasingly important; delivering efficiencies in the production chain, enabling the creation of new experiences that will continue to engage the audience and giving us the ability to adapt our media to new platforms, services and devices."

Perceptive media - Research Portal | Lancaster University - 0 views

  •  
    "Storytelling techniques within traditional broadcast media have not made major advances in recent years due to the linear and relatively rigid approach to narrative despite advances in the technology that delivers the content. This research proposes the concept of 'perceptive media' in which the content creators have at their disposal different tools and sensors to allow for the subtle adaption of the narrative without any direct interactions from the audience members. The concept is demonstrated through the creation of a 'perceptive radio' that is able to play specially designed content that adapts to the physical and social context in which the radio resides."

    "Dynamically Inserted Ads
    In recent years, ad technology has allowed for ads to
    be targeted and dynamically inserted at
    the time of file request. The
    ad
    server determines the best ad to serve to the listener at the time
    of request. In a podcast consumed online, ads may be inserted into a file that is being
    progressively downloaded
    at designated ad breaks
    . Some
    publishers
    may count this dynamic
    ad serve
    as an "impression"
    without confirming ad delivery. T
    he metrics in this document focus
    on confirming that the ad was delivered. S
    erver log
    s can
    confirm that the
    enti
    r
    e
    ad
    file was
    downloaded
    , but the process for counting a served ad can
    only determine that ad file was sent

Mozilla: Common Voice - 0 views

    "Voice is natural, voice is human. That's why we're fascinated with creating usable voice technology for our machines. But most of that technology is locked up in a few big corporations and isn't available to the majority of developers. We think that stifles innovation so we're launching Project Common Voice, a project to help make voice recognition open to everyone. Now you can donate your voice to help us build an open-source voice recognition engine that anyone can use to make innovative apps for devices and the web."

    We show that easily accessible digital records of behavior, Facebook Likes, can be used to automatically and accurately predict a range of highly sensitive personal attributes including: sexual orientation, ethnicity, religious and political views, personality traits, intelligence, happiness, use of addictive substances, parental separation, age, and gender. The analysis presented is based on a dataset of over 58,000 volunteers who provided their Facebook Likes, detailed demographic profiles, and the results of several psychometric tests. The proposed model uses dimensionality reduction for preprocessing the Likes data, which are then entered into logistic/linear regression to predict individual psychodemographic profiles from Likes. The model correctly discriminates between homosexual and heterosexual men in 88% of cases, African Americans and Caucasian Americans in 95% of cases, and between Democrat and Republican in 85% of cases. For the personality trait "Openness," prediction accuracy is close to the test-retest accuracy of a standard personality test. We give examples of associations between attributes and Likes and discuss implications for online personalization and privacy.
