The MUSCLE Network of Excellence, coordinated by INRIA and ERCIM, to present new prototype demos at CeBIT
For the first time, the MUSCLE Network of Excellence (NoE), launched in March 2004 and sponsored by the European Commission, will have a booth at CeBIT in Hanover, the largest IT event worldwide.
As part of its dissemination activities, the NoE will present the multimedia expertise of its different teams through highly visual demonstrations and videos.
Some live demos will for instance allow visitors to play around with Maps of Music using PlaySOM, listening to them, exploring musical landscapes, and even creating maps of their own. They will also feature PocketSOMPlayer for mobile devices (TU-Wien), 3D-virtual Worlds presenting SOMs (EC3) and Video-Clip Copy Detection (INRIA).
Other presentations will include Shaping 3D Multimedia Environments, Real-Time Audio-Visual Automatic Speech Recognition Demonstrator, Movie Summarization and Skimming Demonstrator, Dynamic Texture Detection, Image Segmentation with Shape Priors, etc.
MUSCLE aims at establishing and fostering closer collaboration between research groups in multimedia data mining and machine learning. The Network integrates the expertise of over forty research groups working on image and video processing, speech and text analysis, statistics and machine learning. The goal is to explore the full potential of statistical learning and cross-modal interaction for the (semi-)automatic generation of robust meta-data with high semantic value for multimedia documents.
The Network has launched several showcasing projects, whose results will be presented by the MUSCLE community throughout 2007.
The MUSCLE booth at CeBIT will be located in Hall 9, Stand A14/1, future parc.

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.
As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...
Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.
Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...
For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.
While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...
An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.
The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...
A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.
Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
