We describe a case study of a complex, ongoing, collaborative work process, where the central activity is a series of meetings reviewing a wide range of subtle technical topics. The problem is the accurate repxting of the results of these meetings, which is the responsibility of a single person, who is not well-versed in all the topics. We provided tools to capture the meeting discussions and tools to “salvage” the cap tured multimedia recordings. Salvaging is a new kind of activity involving…

What did i miss?: in-meeting review using multimodal accelerated instant replay (air) conferencing

An Accelerated Instant Replay (AIR) Conferencing system for videoconferencing that enables users to catch up on missed content while the meeting is ongoing and preferred using audio along with any other modality to using audio alone.

Some observations on the "live" collaborative tagging of audio conferences in the enterprise

A system for "live" collaborative tagging of enterprise meetings taking place on an audio bridge between distributed participants and it is found that the live-tags for audio have slightly different characteristics from Web 2.0 tags: they are longer and confer affordances on the audio like description and summarization.

Accessing spoken interaction through dialogue processing

A new probabilistic segmentation framework as well as new features (speaker initiative and style) prove to be very effective compared to traditional keyword based methods.

Restructuring multimodal interaction data for browsing and search

A unifying architecture is presented which encompasses modality translation (e.g. speech recognition and image analysis) as well as the underlying recording under a single linked time-based model, which support remote multiparty collaboration and co-located recorded meetings.

Extracting information from multimedia meeting collections

An overview of recent approaches in multimedia meeting information systems and work on automatic analysis of human interaction patterns from audio-visual sensors is described, discussing open issues in this domain.

Designing and evaluating meeting capture and access services

This thesis is designing and implementing capture and access prototypes for several domains and evaluating these prototypes in realistic use to gain an understanding of the motivations for using these prototypes, the patterns of reviewing meetings, and the effect of capture on the meeting.

HyperMeeting: Supporting Asynchronous Meetings with Hypervideo

The HyperMeeting system supports the viewing of prior meetings during a videoconference and automatic link-following guided by playback plans present the relevant content to users during playback.

The task of segmenting audio-visual records of multidisciplinary medical team meetings as a topic segmentation task is described, a method for automatic segmentation based on a "content-free" representation of conversational structure is presented, and a series of patient case segmentation experiments are reported.

Interaction-based information retrieval in multimodal, online, artefact-focused meeting recordings

A temporal model in which navigation of meeting recordings is performed according toactions’content or actions’context is developed, and visualisation of meeting information centred on the concept of data objects with persisting histories, rather than the more traditional Multimedia concept of media streams is explored.

The audio notebook: paper and pen interaction with structured speech

A new device-the Audio Notebook-for taking notes and interacting with a speech recording, a combination of a digital audio recorder and paper notebook, all in one device.



A confederation of tools for capturing and accessing collaborative activity

A confederation of tools that combine to support the real-time capture of and subsequent access to informal collaborative activities, called Coral, which involves frequent discussion and decision-making meetings and later access of the captured records of those meetings to produce accurate documentation.

Augmenting real-world objects: a paper-based audio notebook

The Audio Notebook allows a user to capture and access an audio recording of a lecture or meeting in conjunction with notes written on paper, synchronized with the user’s handwritten notes and page turns.

Activity-based Information Retrieval: Technology in Support of Personal Memory

The paper discusses some of the difficulties with the proposed activity-based retrieval system, and presents the results of three experiments in which autobiographical episodes were reconstructed by means of automatically collected activity data.

Tivoli: an electronic whiteboard for informal workgroup meetings

Tivoli strives to provide its users with the simplicity, facile use, and easily understood functionality of conventional whiteboards, while at the same time taking advantage of the computational power of the Liveboard to support and augment its users' informal meeting practices.

Communication and information retrieval with a pen-based meeting support tool

Findings from an empirical study of the use of The authors-Met for group communication and the search and retrieval of information from non-computer based meetings are discussed to provide insight into how to facilitate these activities in They- met.

Where were we: making and using near-synchronous, pre-narrative video

In order to make higher production speeds possible when making confectionery lollipops a method and a device are presented wherein the separation of the pieces of confectionery takes place by means

Ubiquitous audio: capturing spontaneous collaboration

Applications for capturing and structuring audio from office discussions and telephone calls, and mechanisms for later retrieval of these stored interactions are described.

Teaching and learning as multimedia authoring: the classroom 2000 project

Various prototype tools created and used in a variety of courses are discussed, an initial evaluation of the acceptance and effectiveness of the technology is provided and some lessons learned are shared in applying ubiquitous computing technology in a real setting.

Liveboard: a large interactive display supporting group meetings, presentations, and remote collaboration

With nearly one million pixels and an accurate, multi-state, cordless pen, the Liveboard provides a basis for research on user interfaces for group meetings, presentations and remote collaboration.

Speaker segmentation for browsing recorded audio

A system which automatically divides a multi-speaker recording into speaker segments and displays this information graphically allows a user to easily access the parts of a recording where given people are talking.
