Who Am I?: 

Who Am I? Assistant Professor at SIMS (School of Information Management and Systems) Background

Why Am I Here?: 

Why Am I Here? Creating technology and applications that will enable daily media consumers to become daily media producers Research and teaching in the theory, design, and development of digital media systems for creating and using media metadata to automate media production and reuse

Student Introductions: 

Student Introductions Who are you? Name Undergrad degree and current department Special areas of expertise and interest Why are you here? What you want to learn from the course

Today’s Agenda: 

Today’s Agenda Introductions Problem Domain Goals of Course Course Overview Action Items for Next Time

Global Media Network: 

Global Media Network Digital media produced anywhere by anyone accessible to anyone anywhere Today’s media users become tomorrow’s media producers Not 500 TV Channels — 500,000,000 multimedia Web sources

What is the Problem?: 

What is the Problem? Today people cannot easily find, edit, share, and reuse media Computers don’t understand media content Media is opaque and data rich We lack structured representations Without content representation (metadata), manipulating digital media will remain like word-processing with bitmaps

Types of Multimedia Data: 

Types of Multimedia Data 1D Audio (speech, music, sound effects, etc.) MIDI 2D Photographs Graphics 3D Video (2D + Time) Animation (2D + Time) Computer graphic models 4D Computer graphic model animation (3D + Time)

Moore’s Law for Cameras: 

Moore’s Law for Cameras 2000 Kodak DC40 Nintendo GameBoy Camera $400 $ 40 2002 Kodak DX4900 SiPix StyleCam Blink

2004: Nokia 7610 Phone: 

2004: Nokia 7610 Phone Integrated megapixel (1152 x 864 pixels) camera Integrated video recorder with audio function and 4x digital zoom for video clips up to 10 minutes long 65,536 color-display, 176 x 208 pixels Bluetooth wireless technology and USB connectivity Advanced XHTML browser 8 MB internal dynamic memory and 64 MB Reduced Size MultiMediaCard (MMC) Downloadable Java™ MIDP 2.0 applications

The Media Problem: 

The Media Problem Vastly more media will be produced Without ways to manage it (metadata creation and use) we lose the advantages of digital media Most current approaches are insufficient and perhaps misguided Great opportunity for innovation and invention Need interdisciplinary approaches to the problem

Today’s Agenda: 

Today’s Agenda Introductions Problem Domain Goals of Course Course Overview Action Items for Next Time

Goals of the Course: 

Goals of the Course Acquire theoretical and practical foundations to analyze, design, and produce multimedia information systems Media theory Media practice Current and future media systems and applications Learn to apply media theory to media design Gain further experience in project-based learning and teamwork Develop an enduring framework and methodology for media analysis and design

What This Course Is: 

What This Course Is Graduate level lecture/seminar/studio in multimedia information Highly interdisciplinary Information Management and Systems, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering Film Studies, Cognitive Science, Linguistics Film Practice, Design, HCI Project-based and team-oriented Requires stretching, commitment, and active participation
