Embedded Metadata: A Look Inside Issues and Tools

By November 19, 2010AMIA Presentations

Metadata is an integral component of digital preservation and an essential part of the digital object. Files without appropriate metadata are not understandable, interpretable, or manageable. Effectively, there is no preservation or meaningful access without metadata.

This presentation explores recent studies and advancements focusing on embedded metadata, or metadata that is stored in the file itself. While this session is audio-centric, we believe that these studies and advancements lay the foundation for work to be performed addressing similar needs in the video domain.
