The first International Workshop on Automated Information Extraction in Media Production (AIEMPro), sponsored and organised by EBU’s Project Group P/SCAIE members, was held in conjunction with the 19th edition of the Database and Expert Systems Applications (DEXA 2008).
P/SCAIE's chair Alberto Messina summarised: "I think we achieved significant progress in the appraisal of the impact of such technologies on new television and other media production models. But this is just a first step in a long march. There still is a lot of traditional thinking in our industry." The next AIEMPro is planned for 2009.
