The MUSCLE Network of Excellence, coordinated by INRIA and ERCIM, to present new prototype demos at CeBIT

16.03.2007
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.

Im Focus: Making lightweight construction suitable for series production

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.

Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...

Im Focus: Wonder material? Novel nanotube structure strengthens thin films for flexible electronics

Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.

"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...

Im Focus: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
