We propose a multi-part system to process, understand, and summarize video streams. Our approach involves processing video and audio jointly; uses the latest advances in captioning and automatic speech-recognition to construct text narratives for the video; and uses NLP techniques to summarize and produce a reliable relevance ranking of these videos. We address all six technical challenges identified by the solicitation to provide an end-to-end solution.Our team is uniquely qualified for this initiative, given our experience in high-performance algorithms (including successful DARPA contracts), video analytics, natural language processing, and deep learning.
