sharing seminars and notes

Recently, the number of technical posts has been a little low, but I have continued to attend the many interesting talks and seminars available at Columbia. Sharing educational materials for others who are curious or are genuinely unable to access these talks in person (i.e. international scholars) seems to be a growing trend demonstrated by recent talks and seminars, several online blogs or lawsuits and even the number of higher education institutions adding education video channels like Columbia.

Although these notes are almost verbatim of the author's slides or presentation, where possible, other links in the area and definitions of relevant acronyms will be included. Hopefully, this will allow these posts to be uniquely informative and interesting instead of a mere regurgitation of the original author's insight. Of course, if you are one of these authors and object to the posting of your material, just send me a quick note and I'll be happy to take it down.

Enjoy or tell me how you could...


  1. Thanks for posting all these briefings, I read all of them on the Google Reader for iPhone and learning from them.

    Regarding sharing notes, I also normally use the open repository provided by my university to publish the course notes and thesis from my students. The technological platform used there is DSpace from MIT and HP, which is supposed to guarantee the durability of the DOI and digital formats.

    On a more experimental side, I have directed some thesis focus on video delivering over IP based on open formats and software. Las year the first version for web browser interface was launched. We expect to release a new version in Summer with support for TV Set Top Boxes and, next Fall, to work on the mobile phone interface.
    More details on my students' blog:

    Thanks for a second perspective. Your project is also interesting and mobile delivery is a very hot topic; both preparing the content (bitrate, summarization, etc) and allowing intuitive interactions (voice, image CBIR, long-term relevance learning). Good luck and I'll keep a tab on your progress, too!
