    JUMAS

    Judicial Management by Digital Libriaries Semantics

    http://www.jumasproject.eu/

    Description

    An advanced audio and video knowledge management system

    JUMAS addresses the need to build an infrastructure able to optimise the information workflow in order to facilitate later analysis. New models and techniques for representing and automatically extracting the embedded semantics derived from multiple data sources will be developed. The most important goal of the JUMAS system is to collect, enrich and share multimedia documents annotated with embedded semantic minimising manual transcription activity. JUMAS is tailored at managing situations in which multiple cameras and audio sources are used to record assemblies in which people debates and event sequences need to be semantically reconstructed for future consultations. The prototype of JUMAS will be tested interworking with legacy systems, but the system can be viewed as able to support business processes and problem-solving in a variety of domains.

    Description

    JUMAS (Judicial Management by Digital Libriaries Semantics) is a European project funded by the ICT programme within the 7th Framework Programme for Research and Development activities of the European Commisson for the period from 2007 to 2013. JUMAS addresses the need to supply the users with effective tools for managing multimedia libraries, such as criminal trial proceedings. New models and techniques for extracting and representing the embedded semantics derived from multiple data sources will be developed. JUMAS will automate the transcription process and provide effective information retrieval tools on multimedia libraries through the collection, enrichment and sharing of multimedia documents annotated with embedded semantics.
