The quantity of video generated each year is expanding rapidly. This increasing volume of visual information means that it is more likely that any particular event will be recorded, but that the footage will be harder to find. This applies to a collection of home videos as much as to television and movie footage. The object-recognition method to be developed has the potential to alleviate this situation, in which vast amounts of video data are available but have little value. Such an outcome would be a boon for Australian industry and offer a valuable export opportunity.
