Computers that watch and describe movies

Dear Sir or Madam,

We all know audio books – publishers offer us an easy and relaxed way to listen to books instead of reading them. Blind and visually impaired people could be able to enjoy audio movies and audio shows in the future, without the need of an author who writes down the action first. We asked how a computer could be able to do this work automatically.

Enjoy reading!

We asked ...

In order to understand the plot of a movie an audio version is very helpful for visually impaired people. Authors watch the whole movies and describe what happens in each scene. But wouldn't it be possible for a computer software to do this kind of work? Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of computer science in Germany work on developing a program which automatically generates movie descriptions and reads them out.

Driver training for people with disabilities

Topic of the Month

Self-determination and mobility are important for everyone - and especially for people with physical and mobility impairments. Many people with disabilities that were caused by accidents are initially still insecure when they want to actively return to driving. To help them in slowly easing back into traffic, the Austrian CLUB MOBIL offers driver safety courses. Aside from theoretical and practical exercises, fundamental aspects such as converting one’s vehicle are also being discussed.
