Cooperation with GLOCAL

WeKnowIt and GLOCAL - Event-based Retrieval of Networked Media are two projects enabling relevant approaches related to events.

The key idea underlying GLOCAL is to use events as the primary means to organize and index media, e.g. photos, videos, journal articles. Instead of starting from media and seeing, a posteriori, how we can meaningfully understand their contents (e.g., by tagging them), GLOCAL organizes a priori their data and knowledge in terms of events and use media to populate them, thus providing their experiential dimension. Events provide the common framework inside which the local experience-driven contextual information can be be shared and reduced to a common denominator.

In this context, the projects have agreed to exchange information mutually, and organise common participation in events.
