Abstract

This paper presents a system designed for the management of multimedia databases that embarks upon the problem of efficient media processing and representation for automatic semantic classification and modelling. Its objectives are founded on the integration of a large-scale wildlife digital media archive with a manually annotated semantic metadata organised in a structured taxonomy and media classification system. Novel techniques will be applied to temporal analysis, intelligent key-frame extraction, animal gait analysis, semantic modelling and audio classification. The system demonstrator will be developed as a part of an ICBR project within the 3C Research programme of convergent technology research for digital media processing and communications.
