In this paper we give an overview of the AMI project. AMI developed the following: (1) an infrastructure for recording meetings using multiple microphones and cameras; (2) a one hundred hour, manually annotated meeting corpus; (3) a number of techniques for indexing, and summarizing of meeting videos using automatic speech recognition and computer vision, and (4) an extensible framework for browsing, and searching of meeting videos. We give an overview of the various techniques developed in AMI, their integration into our meeting browser framework, and future plans for AMIDA (Augmented Multiparty Interaction with Distant Access), the follow-up project to AMI.
