Creating enriched YouTube media fragments With NERD using timed-text

Li, Yunjia, Rizzo, Giuseppe, Troncy, Raphael, Wald, Mike and Wills, Gary (2012) Creating enriched YouTube media fragments With NERD using timed-text At 11th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC2012), United States. 11 - 15 Nov 2012. 4 pp.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Poster)


This demo enables the automatic creation of semantically annotated YouTube media fragments. A video is first ingested in the Synote system and a new method enables to retrieve its associated subtitles or closed captions. Next, NERD is used to extract named entities from the transcripts which are then temporally aligned with the video. The entities are disambiguated in the LOD cloud and a user interface enables to browse through the entities detected in a video or get more information. We evaluated our application with 60 videos from 3 YouTube channels.
