Yahoo! Research Labs–Berkeley and SIMS Garage Cinema

1 Comment

Marc Davis, who I met at CHI 2005, will head Yahoo! Research Lab – Berkeley, a mobile multimedia lab colaboration between Yahoo! Research and the University of California – Berkeley.

He will continue to lead the Garage Cinema Research Lab of the School of Information Management and Systems (SIMS) at the University of California – Berkeley.

It will be interesting to see how Garage Cinema research in media metadata, context-aware mobile media applications, automated media capture & editing or social uses of personal media can be transfered to Yahoo!. Applications coming out of Garage Cinema include the MReplay mobile TV service and the MMS cameraphone picture service.
