I’m learning how to use ffmpeg mainly to convert videos into images. The image frames will be used in our dataset that trains the machine learning algorithm. (P.S. the GIF above is converting video to audio).
Hopefully, our algorithm will be able to annotate video data just as a human would. The video data for the TIMELI group consists of Traffic Incident Managers (TIMs) performing their usual work activity. The previous method for behavioral coding by user researchers included a manual process for logging different behaviors (the TIM is filing a report, the TIM is communicating to police by phone, etc). We hope to automate this process with a successful algorithm that does the same thing, but with more data. This will aid the user research process significantly allowing for more efficient interface research/design.
Quote of the Day: “The GIF is like our mind trying to understand everything” – Leilanie Morales
FFMPEG and JPEG,
Yesterday I hurt my leg,
An algorithm without rhythm,
The promise I renege,
A lit review is near,
