Reader JG points me to this release, from IBM Research in Haifa:
IBM recently announced the launch of a new EU 6th Framework project for Search on Audio-visual content using Peer-to-peer Information Retrieval (SAPIR) to build a large scale information community that will make multimedia files more accessible.
SAPIR is geared towards finding new ways to analyze, index, and retrieve the tremendous amounts of speech, image, video, and music that are filling our digital universe. The ultimate result will be a peer-to-peer distributed space that can be searched by content or example rather than using the current methods, which are limited to keywords and text-based tags.
