I really love what Johannes P Osterhoff does: his Google performance where he made his search requests public. That discomfort means to adjust your life to constant surveillance. It’s about being completely open about everything, and now there is a really interesting range in documentation of what he went through in this time. — Olia Lialina, EXBERLINER, Feb 2012

On yovisto labs my fellow researches show off their work in all sorts fields of media analysis. Some interfaces I designed also can be found there.

The labs originate in yovisto, the academic video serach engine to upload, share, search, tag, and discuss scientific videos. In addition to the function of a video search engine, yovisto enables the search within lecture videos. yovisto provides an automated mechanism to generate a full-text index of the videos.

With yovisto it is possible to describe video content collaboratively, additionally users can place keywords or labels (tagging) at any position within a video (collaborative tagging) and they can start or carry on discussions belonging to any position within the video. Moreover, users can write or edit wiki-pages to enrich the video content with further information, such as images, hyperlinks, and text. The content based search functionality of yovisto is the most important additional benefit for the user and allows an efficient search through yovisto’s repository.
