The Interactive Information Access group at CWI has a vacancy for a 2 
year postdoc position in interactive access to automatically linked video.

The candidate is expected to carry out research on conveying to the user 
the trustworthiness of automatically generated, but imperfect, links 
between video and other media.

The research will take place in the context of the EU FP7 project 
LinkedTV (http://www.linkedtv.eu/).  Partners in the project include the 
German broadcaster Rundfunk Berlin-Brandenburg and the Dutch audiovisual 
archive institute Sound & Vision (Beeld en Geluid). Project partners 
automatically detect objects in the video, and, from these, provide 
links to related information in the same video sources or other 
web-based information sources.
The role of this postdoc position is to investigate how linked resources 
can be used in combination with the professionally created video 
broadcasts to enhance the user's viewing experience.

The candidate will be expected to liaise with partners in other 
workpackages in the project, specifically on creating candidate links 
among concepts related to the detected video objects and on providing a 
personalised set of links for the end-user. The research is expected to 
lead to publications in top conferences and journals.

Other current projects in the group are:
* EU FP7 project Fish4Knowlegde http://fish4knowledge.eu
* 2 national projects within the COMMIT program: SEALINCMedia and Infinity
* national NWO CATCH project WebART: Web Archive Retrieval Tools

Applications should be submitted before 1st December 2012.
