RTL Belgium chooses Perfect Memory’s Semantic Platform

This project, which is part of ambitious innovation programs driven by the enterprise for the past 20 years, aims to connect production and operation channels of data and content, in order to better serve the operators and improve its user experience. Steny Solitude, CEO and Founder of PERFECT MEMORY, specifies: “With our key challenge of putting data at the heart of the new audiovisual asset management system, this platform enables us to strengthen the strategic needs of traceability and simplification of access to all the steps of the document life-cycle: from its production, to broadcasting “On Air” and on the Internet, and until its archiving.» RAFFINÉ™, the innovative offer of PERFECT MEMORY, a cloud-powered semantic data management platform (S-DMP), capable of automatically reconciling every type of data source (internal and external), every data format (text, image, audio, video), and every data type (structured or non-structured). The platform can be deployed as a standalone application or integrated with existing solutions (DAM, MAM, GED). The technical team in charge of the project at RTL Belgium, composed notably of Thierry Piette, Thomas Matelart, Antoine Pichault and Frédéric Bochart, unanimously states: “The main reason for choosing Perfect Memory resides essentially in the capacity of its solution to reveal the entire value of available content, presenting to users in a suggestive format, which brings them to navigate by suggestion of concepts. This approach allows use to open the search field to producers, who would not have necessarily searched for the content which had been suggested by the software. Furthermore, PERFECT MEMORY was presented to RTL Belgium as a Technology partner, whose  objective is to build an evolutionary, high-performing, agile, interoperable solution geared towards the future.” Let us remember that PERFECT MEMORY, in the advent of IBC 2016, will celebrate 6 years of development and intensive structuring, and already owns  an asset of prestigious references in the Broadcasting, Media and Audiovisual World, such as: Radio France, Belgavox, and TV France International.

Big Data issues : Is it all about crunching the numbers ?

As Gary Marcus says in the New York Times: “Big Data is suddenly everywhere, everyone seems to be collecting it, analyzing it, making money from it and celebrating its powers” But first of all, what is Big Data ? According to Avita Katal, Big data is defined as large amount of data which requires new technologies and architectures so that it becomes possible to extract value from it by capturing and analysis process. Due to such large size of data it becomes very difficult to perform effective analysis using the existing traditional techniques. Big data due to its various properties like volume, velocity, variety, variability, value and complexity put forward many challenges. Few statistics : according to CISCO, in 2013 Internet Communications weighed 667 exabytes. On the other hand, through Social Media, we produce more than 12 terabytes of data each day. Then what challenge does the Big Data rise ? Dr. Timo Hannay empathizes three key points : “first we have to understand that information is power, data is the new oil; on the second hand we must teach and train data professionnals (Data Mining Engineer, Chief Data Officier,…) and last but not least we have to design new tools to handle Big Data issues.” During the CES, check out our booth (81241) for a personal demo. ...

Focus on the Flow of Information

Today, we will talk about the Flow of Information. Perfect Memory deals with tons of data, we process information then we extract knowledge from it. To better understand the ins sand outs of Knowledge Curation, we offer you an extract from one of Danah Boyd’s public speeches. She is a social media scholar, youth researcher, and advocate working at Microsoft Research, New York University Media Culture & Communication and the Harvard Berkman Center for Internet & Society. « For the last few centuries, we have been living in an era of broadcast media, but we have been switching to an era of networked media. This fundamentally alters the structure by which information flows. Those who believe in broadcast structures recognize the efficiency of a single, centralized source. There’s some nostalgia here. The image is clear: 1950s nightly news… everyone tunes in to receive the same message at the same time. There are the newspapers, the radio stations, the magazines… all telling the same news-y story. Centralized sources of information are powerful because they control the means of distribution. There is also the town gossip, the church, and the pub. These too were centralized channels for disseminating information. Broadcast media structures take one critical thing for granted: attention. There is an assumption that everyone will tune in and give their attention to the broadcast entity, even though that was never true in the first place. As TV channels and publishing brands proliferated, we’ve seen that attention can easily be fragmented. Over the last few decades, increasing numbers of entities have been fighting for a smaller and smaller portion of the pie. Even gossip rags started competing for attention. The opportunities for media creation have been rising for decades, but the Internet provided new mechanisms through which people could make their own content available. From blogging to social network sites to media sharing sites to sites that provide social streams, we are seeing countless ways in which a motivated individual can make their personal content available. There were always folks willing to share their story but the Internet gave them a pulpit on which to stand. “Internet technologies are fundamentally dismantling and reworking the structures of distribution.” Internet technologies are fundamentally dismantling and reworking the structures of distribution. Distribution is a process by which content creators find channels through which they can disseminate their creation. In effect, they’re pushing out the content. Sure, people have to be there to receive it, but the idea is that there are limited channels for distribution and thus getting access to this limited resource is hard. That is no longer the case. As networked technologies proliferate around the world, we can assume that there is a channel of distribution available to everyone and between everyone. In theory, anyone could get content to anyone else. With the barriers to distribution collapsing, what matters is not the act of distribution, but the act of consumption. Thus, the power is no longer in the hands of those who control the channels of distribution, but those who control the limited resource of attention. This is precisely why YOU were the Person of the Year. Your attention is precious and valuable. It’s no longer about push; it’s about pull. And the law of two feet is now culturally pervasive ». Then she highlights four core issues about the evolution in the way Information flows : Democratization, Stimulation, Homophily and Power. You can read the entire speech transcription on her website, entitled « Streams of Content, Limited Attention: The Flow of Information through Social Media » During the CES, meet Perfect Memory in booth 81241 ...
