SICSA Showcase

Computer scientists and researchers from universities all over Scotland recently showcased
their work at DEMOfest, an event organised by SICSA. The 50 projects covered everything from speech, language and homecare to security, simulation and modelling. 

Researchers from the University of St Andrews are working on Video Fingerprinting for Digital Assets Management. Potential applications include multimedia copyright protection, file transfer software, network video piracy detection and TV and broadcast archive management.

SICSA-funded researchers at the Interaction Lab at Heriot-Watt University are developing novel techniques to enable people to communicate and access information in different ways. For example, by recording and analysing somebody’s speech, information is fed into an internet search application and fed back to the person via graphics and speech – a solution which may be useful for hands-free assistance, patient monitoring and supermarket shopping.
