Sumit joined HSI in Fall of 2008 and is currently working on the independent study project, "Family Video Archive", under the guidance of Professor Gregory Abowd. The project focuses on further developing a tool to give consumers the ability to annotate and browse large collections of informal family movies, since the informal nature of home movies makes it difficult to use fully-automated techniques for scene detection and annotation. The system explores the symbiosis between automated and manual techniques for annotation as well as the use of a zooming interaction paradigm for browsing and filtering large collections of video scenes.The project is an Aware Home Initiative within the Ubiquitous Computing group.
