SuperGlue is a core news research initiative that is a "digestion system" and metadata generator for mass media. An evolving set of analysis modules annotate 14 DirecTV live news broadcast channels as well as web pages and tweets. The video is archived and synchronized with the analysis. Currently, the system provides named-entity extraction, audio expression markers, face detectors, scene/edit point locators, excitement trackers, and thumbnail summarization. We use this to organize material for presentation, analysis, and summarization. SuperGlue supports other news-related experiments.

SuperGlue is a framework for media digestion and metadata generation. The digestion work flow also has applications for media more broadly including conversational ecommerce.
