The Web becomes largely audiovisual, in this context how to expose these contents with metadata synchronized to the AV stream? How to bring search engines results onto precise AV segments instead on a global audio or video program? How to share time-based favorites on social networks? This rely partly on the evolution of web standards (HTML5, W3C media fragments, …) but above all on our capacity to index and annotate audiovisual content in the streams. Today, three methods can be implemented alone or in combination:
|++||to support the position of the speaker|
|--||to express opposition to the talk|
|==||to address a question to the speaker, moderator or to the tweet community.|
|??||to bring a reference to websites, URLs, books, other tweets|
In 2008, under the initiative of the philosopher Bernard Stiegler, IRI was founded by Centre Pompidou, CCC Barcelona and Microsoft France in order to develop fundamental research on Amateur practices, Attention ecology and Design for a new Industrial Word in the context of the economy of contribution. IRI also undertakes an R&D program focused on collaborative technologies for the development of innovative spaces for critics. These digital environments combines top down metadata with amateur contributions (bottom-up), paying high attention to the issue of synchronizing contributions with digital contents produced during varied contexts including live events. For this purpose, IRI developed a metatada player featuring adapted data visualization and better exposition of temporal media to search engines and social networks.
