post-hoc worknotes (2002)

A 2002 concept demonstration to explore the state of the art in content management of non-textual media, and how such technologies could be put to meaningful use in an everyday context.

Turned out to be fairly prescient work: Three of the key ideas (searching video clips through speech-to-texted audio tracks, searching by drawing sketches of salient visual features, and digital pens indexing AV streams during note-taking) were marketed in the fall of 2008 as first-of-their-kind products (Gaudi, Gazopa and LiveScribe).

With partners from the Viggen CMC research consortium.
