Scientific videos just became even more plentiful and even more accessible through OSTI’s multimedia search tool ScienceCinema. Over a three-month period and with the help of a wonderful summer intern working alongside OSTI staff, we have added 560 new science videos to ScienceCinema from DOE Labs. Now, ScienceCinema contains over 3,200 videos highlighting exciting research sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy and CERN. Using innovative, state-of-the-art audio indexing and speech recognition technology, ScienceCinema allows users to quickly search videos, and identify the exact point in the video where the search terms were spoken.
In February, I wrote to you about the launch of ScienceCinema, a multimedia search engine developed by OSTI, in partnership with Microsoft.
It continues to grow, and I am pleased to let you knowthat it is adding audio and video materials from CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research. The inclusion of CERN materials is a milestone in the longstanding scientific collaboration between DOE and CERN and will increase public access to CERN scientific multimedia collections
ScienceCinema, OSTI's new multimedia search tool, was launched yesterday as part of a one-day workshop, “Multimedia and Visualization Innovations for Science,” jointly hosted by Microsoft and the International Council for Scientific and Technical Information (ICSTI), held in Redmond, Washington.
Even the most outrageous Ponzi scheme couldn't promise a return of 10 million percent, but that's the return to be realized by opening the Department of Energy's historic R&D findings to the web. Yes, you have to accept certain assumptions, but it's not a major leap
Because we live in a digital world, many people mistakenly believe all research is easily available online. Not only is this a false assumption, it's not even an easy task to digitize the volume of research currently available in paper format and get it posted online.
