DEFI-REPERE is in line with the objectives of the ANR project Contents and Interactions, in partnership with DGA.

Three consortia are funded over a 36-month period. They aim to create a people recognition system in television broadcasts. Here are the various sources of information used:

  • The image in which the persons are visible;
  • The embedded texts in which the name of the persons appears;
  • The soundtrack on which the speakers’ voice is recognisable;
  • The content of the speech signal in which the persons’ name is pronounced.

The performance of these systems is assessed each year through an evaluation campaign. The campaign will focus on French-language television documents such as news broadcasts, debates, entertainment programs.
