MSc by Research: Streamlining production workflows for accessible audio using AI metadata assignment

Project description:
This project will explore how Artificial Intelligence (AI) methods can be used to streamline new content production workflows to ensure our increased use of AV media is accessible. The proposed MSc by Research will further explore the challenge of streamlining the Narrative Importance metadata acquisition process through use of AI. It will focus on two areas: perception and technical implementation. The first will evaluate whether perceptual quality of the automated metadata mixes are comparable with that of the original sound designer. The second will explore how appropriately representative databases of NI metadata can be generated and whether the approach used in generalises to other types of content.
