Manually tagging and processing video is time consuming. Here, we want to automate the task of generating events and summaries, like the clips shown in the sport news, using for example machine learning.

Interested in sport technology for videos used by elite leagues and live broadcasters? We have for long researched sports technology, both for distributing the video of live broadcasts and managing the archives in Norway and Sweden. We develop systems that are actively used and tested on real users, where the users can see highlights and summaries, get recommendations, collect favorite events, make personalized playlists, etc. However, there are a lot of open questions and issues to address like how to make

automated AI-based event detection systems
automated AI-based clipping systems
automated AI-based summarization systems
investigate gamification solutions for users

We collaborate with the leagues and elite clubs in Norway and Sweden, the football associations, Telenor, broadcasters, Forzasys (a streaming technology company), Telenor and several international partners.

Want to be part of our research group and improve the current systems? Contact us, and let’s see if we can find a thesis topic that matches your interests!
