U.S. Department of Energy Presents ScienceCinema: Searchable Videos

Science Cinema

Interested in scientific videos highlighting the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) most exciting research?

ScienceCinema is a searchable collection of multimedia videos capturing DOE’s latest research and development. It is an innovative form of scientific communication that uses advanced speech recognition technology from Microsoft Research to allow users to pinpoint exactly when specific words or phrases are spoken within videos. When users type in keywords or phrases they are interested in, segments of videos where the search terms were spoken are retrieved. Users will then be able to select specific segments of a video, and the video will begin to play at the exact moment those words were spoken.
