Earlier this year, we introduced you to Sixth Sense Retrieval, a DNI prototype project dedicated to analyzing and indexing vast amounts of video content in order to unlock media archives. In the meantime, 6SR has been completed, and everybody at MindFlux and DW is quite happy with the results. Within the project scope, we could implement all envisioned features, which can now serve as a basis for a future, more sophisticated tool.
