Research Overview

The purpose of this project is to develop fundamental technologies for building a similarity-aware information environment in which people are able to know similarities among vast amounts of media content. This environment will help establish a “content-symbiotic society” in which media content such as music and video can be created and used in innovative, but ethical ways. Furthermore, by developing technologies for enhancing content creation and appreciation, we aim to promote a society in which anyone can actively engage in content creation and appreciation, and a content culture that respects past content and emphasizes experiencing emotion.
