If you have a question about this talk, please contact Rachel Fogg.

It is well known that Google has been involved in R&D in the areas of content based analysis and 3d reconstruction for some time. Less well known perhaps is its efforts in media signal processing as well as music media analysis and recommendation. In this seminar three tech leads in these areas will give a brief overview of this work and also expose how the research community can contribute to open source efforts in media communications over the web.

Next Generation Video Coding for internet broadcasting Paul Wilkins, Chrome Media

Establishing the web as the most compelling video distribution platform requires coding techniques that are aligned with the internet system overall : Low complexity, error resilient, high quality, dynamic and critically: free and open. The coding team at Google has been working on several codecs, shipping vp8 in 2010, and just a few months away from shipping its successor. These codecs are used in multiple Google products (YouTube, Chrome, Android) for realtime and on-demand video applications. This talk outlines new efforts in the next generation video codec and the advantages it presents. The talk also shows how the research community can contribute to this project.

Real Time Communications : The WebRTC standard Jan Skoglund, Tech Lead, Chrome Media

WebRTC brings high quality, low-latency video conferencing to the web browser without any plugins. The technology behind WebRTC has been in development for many years and is now free and open source. This talk outlines the webRTC system and gives some pointers to the underlying technology which includes efficient schemes for bandwidth estimation and real time implementations for media coding. The research community is encouraged to contribute to the standard as well as exploit the layer as an excellent teaching tool for internet communications.

Google Research and Music Tom Walters, Google Ears Project Group

This talk outlines some of the work in the Google research group in the area of music recommendation and copyright i.d. An overview of the breadth of work in audio research is also presented.

This talk is part of the Signal Processing and Communications Lab Seminars series.
