During the 1990s, search technology improved sufficiently to handle large volumes of textual material without the need for manual abstracting, indexing, and cataloging. Taking professional cataloguers out of the process of text indexing created enormous value; an analogous set of advances is underway with video in the 2010s. But how and when will it be possible to take professionals out of the process of cataloging video manually? How can we expect different approaches to video search and search UI to evolve, and which ones will prove most useful? What kind of societal value can we reap by making making all of our broadcast history as readily accessible as books, journal articles, and newspapers are now? How can the W3C help with the development of appropriate standards for video description and search? Answers to and debate about these questions will be the focus of this panel, which has representatives from some of the largest, most viewed, and carefully indexed collections of digital video available online.
