Last year I pulled together the proposal for a collaborative project between BBC Research and Development and MetaBroadcast which won funding from the Technology Strategy Board. The Automatic Broadcast Content Interlinking Project (ABC-IP for short) is developing advanced text processing techniques to link together incomplete sources of metadata around large video and audio collections. The aim is to work out new ways to unlock archive content and build a range of new services that help audiences find their way around programmes from the BBC and beyond. You can read more by me on the BBC R&D blog about work behind the scenes and check out MetaBroadcast’s blog to see more about the first prototype called Tellytopic.
