Miami Beach, Florida — At the New World Symphony, we had a problem. We had years of content, thousands of video recordings and images of the academy, faculty and guest artists in action, but there was no way for us to access it for either educational or marketing purposes.
From the beginning, our Fellows have been working with leaders in the classical world, and these interactions are invaluable. We’ve taken countless pictures and recorded a lot of audio and video, but we had no way to put these assets to use because they were difficult to catalog and locate as needed. A video clip of a master class with a visiting faculty member can be a powerful teaching tool for years to come.
Another challenge I kept hearing from our marketing team was their need to put together multimedia presentations for fundraisers or to share with patrons and media outlets, showing how the New World Symphony has helped our Fellows get to their next steps in life.
We propose to build a portal-based, pay-as-you-use media ‘engine’ into our video switches at BT Tower. Live content feeds coming through the switches could be captured in 24-hour segments, stored for 10 days and have metadata automatically generated. Content could be easily found using keywords, no action would be missed if events run on longer, and rights holders have sufficient time to fetch clips retrospectively.

Mr. Elhadad has been Director of Research & Development of the group since 1996. Mr. Elhadad graduated from Ecole Centrale de Paris and has a PhD in Artificial Intelligence from Columbia University. He is the author of over 50 papers on Artificial Intelligence and Computational Linguistics.As news production teams are increasingly forced to work in a dispersed manner, technology solutions can partially alleviate the lack of co-location to create connections among journalists. We report on an experiment where AI techniques are used to recommend multi-media content to journalists when they are working on their stories. These techniques rely on dramatic, recent progress in Natural Language Processing and Vision research, including neural pre-trained Transformer models such as BERT (Bidirectional Encoder Representations from Transformers). At Dalet, we have developed a news recommendation system for journalists as a set of cloud-based SaaS APIs. In this talk we will report on user experiments with journalists that cover text and video in multiple languages...
What happens when you shift from a few large applications with a few (admittedly complex) APIs to a true microservices world, where your service mesh can consist of dozens or even hundreds of services and APIs?
