Title: Group discussion

A give–and–take discussion about technology relating to open video.

1:04:31 to 1:05:06( Edit History Discussion )

Audience: I think having those transcripts and increasing searchability is really compelling. I mean, I don't really watch videos because the information density is so low if you have to watch the whole thing to get what you're looking at. It's really nice to be able to go to Google, and type something in, and it magically searches though PowerPoints and PDFs and all these things that used to be not-all-that indexable. I have to admit that I'm a geekie, but I forget that I can't actually Google my physical book and get really sad. I think that being able to search that video content will make videos a lot more informative for people. That's very cool.

George Chriss: I'll actually add to that: the largest challenge at this point is availability, in terms of actually having video to start with, the next is discoverability, to actually find these moments of interest, and after that you can talk exciting work like pattern recognition. For example, I can guarantee you that future conversations about environmental sustainability at the local level – you know, they will repeat themselves for local communities and you can start to see patterns and recognize all sorts of cool trends. You can do all sorts of crazy stuff when you think into it. I just saw a newspaper article saying that you can cough into an iPhone, and depending on how you cough, it tells you what kind of disease you have.
Ben Moskowitz: That doesn't seem very reliable!
George Chriss: Well, maybe, maybe not! Based off of statistically–gathered coughs—
Audience: What was the developer thinking‽
George Chriss: I had to chuckle to myself because "if I had a nickle for every time somebody coughed on-video, I could probably do accurate disease prediction."
George Chriss: I think that I've taken up enough time at this point, but if there's any more questions?

1:06:20 to 1:07:22( Edit History Discussion )

Audience: First, I don't think that people so-much need word–for–word transcriptions as they need summaries of each several–minute segment. <George Chriss: Yeah, that's true.> I assume you've seen FORA.tv? There, lectures and presentations are broken up into chapters and you have at least a title for each chapter, so you can see in a 1 hr. talk there's like 7-to-13 parts to it, and then you can also grab—I haven't really tried to do this or seen other people doing it, but they have the capability that you can take Part 03 from Naomi Wolf's presentation, or a Part 02 from Lawrence Lessig's presentation, and put your own amalgam of parts. Is Kaltura doing tools like that?
