Abstrakt

In this article, we describe an innovative approach to an intelligent television system named Swoozy that enables viewers to discover extended information such as facts, images, shopping recommendations or video clips about the currently broadcasted TV program by using the power of technologies of the Semantic Web (Web 3.0). Via a gesture-based user interface viewers will get answers to questions they may ask themselves during a movie or TV report directly on their television. In most cases, these questions are related to the name and vita of the featured actor, the place where a scene was filmed, or purchasable books and items about the topic of the report the viewer is watching. Furthermore, a new interaction concept for TVs is proposed using semantic annotations called “Grabbables” that are displayed on top of the videos and that provide a semantic referencing between the videos’ content and an ontological representation to access Semantic Web Services.
