Poly students help certify (library) canine

Poly Business Librarian Lisa Zilinski is the proud owner of Echo, a recently certified therapy dog. Lisa worked with the Psychology Club to help certify Echo. The German-Australian shepherd mix visited some cognitive science classes as well to help students discuss the benefits of animal-assisted therapy, as well as cognition and learning in dogs.

It was a great opportunity for the students to get a great hands-on, applied learning opportunity, which is integral part of a polytechnic education.

Website of interest: ScienceCinema

Posted in At USFL, Website of interest by Diane Fulkerson | No Comments »

It’s the end of National Engineers Week so we thought this interesting website was à-propos. By the way, did you attend the Engineering Expo yesterday, organized by the Poly Engineering Club? The Library highlighted its services and showcased items from the collection, especially recent book purchases in engineering.

ScienceCinema is a website regrouping videos produced by the US Department of Energy. It was launched February 10th, 2011.

ScienceCinema uses innovative, state-of-the-art audio indexing and speech recognition technology from Microsoft Research to allow users to quickly find video files produced by the DOE National Laboratories and other DOE research facilities. When users search for specific scientific words and phrases of interest to them, precise snippets of the video where the specific search term was spoken will appear along with a timeline. Users can then select a snippet or a segment along the timeline to begin playing the video at the exact point in the video where the words were spoken. The timeline is synced with transcripts of the targeted portion of video.

It is anticipated that scientific videos, animations, interactive visualizations, and other multimedia will become an increasingly prominent form of scientific communications. ScienceCinema was produced, in part, as a proof of concept to demonstrate the value of speech recognition in the complex vocabulary of science. While the launch of the video database will include an initial 1,000 hours of content, it will continue to grow as new DOE R&D-related videos are produced.

ScienceCinema was developed by the DOE Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI) in partnership with Microsoft Research.
