In this technical demonstration we present Smart Video Buddy, a content-based live recommender that links video streams with related information. The system performs a real-time analysis of video content by feeding a scenes' color and local patches to statistical learners, which detect semantic concepts in the video stream. Based on the provided recognition results, recommendations for news, products and links are made and automatically adapted to what is being watched in real-time. This way, passive video consumption is turned into an interactive experience.
