Audiovisual media monitoring prototype

The ALERT project demonstrated that by associating state-of-the-art speech recognition with audio and video segmentation and automatic topic detection, an automatic media monitoring demonstration system can be developed that detects topics in large amounts of multimedia data and alerts those users about the detection of this information that it is relevant for. The ALERT demonstrator has been developed for the three languages French, German and Portuguese and is capable of processing and indexing multimedia content (radio or TV broadcast or internet audio/video) with a strong focus on news and information programs.

The developed prototype is software running on a PC under Linux. This software transcribe into text broadcast news audio files in French and American English. The main components of the system are an audio partitioner, a speech recogniser and a topic detector.
