Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 29, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Shades of Big Brother Computer to monitor TV programs By JEFF CARRUTHERS Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Shades of Big Broliher and 1984. The Canadian Radio-Tele- rision Commission has hired a University computer to see if a computer be programmed to monitor elevision programs and deter- nine what kind of programs the letworks are sending out to Ca- lauians. And Dr. David the man the contract by suggests that if he is the technique could aye the CRTC commissioners aid their staff a lot of trouble matching the boob-tube. What he doesn't say is that the same technique might be useful in having a computer monitor people's activities ei- ther recorded by television cameras or captured on close- circuit television. How would it be the technical language of the contract sets out Dr. Coil's task thusly. explore the feasibility of characterizing television pro- grams by measures related to the average rate of change of by means of a com- puter. In simpler he is go- ing to have a computer meas- ure the amount of activity on a television screen. And he is hoping the com- puter will be able to tell what kind of television program is on the just by its character- istic amounts of or patterns of motion- It's all bsaed on some Aus- tralian research which found that different types of programs had distinctive patterns of ac- tivity on the television screen. For a western char- acteristically had a lot more movement on the screen let's a talk show. And the action of a western was differ- ent than the action of a trav- elogue or a situation comedy. Dr. Coll will attempt to have a computer measure and clas- sify this TV screen action. The computer will compare the white and greys of about spots on a tele- vision picture frame one second with the changed frame a little and so on. The action on the screen will be characterized In terms of the average amount of change between frames over the length of the minus commercials of course. The electronic equipment to accomplish this mind-boggling coupling of computer to tele- vision has already been or- for use starting this fall. Dr. Coll suspects there may be a specific based on screen activity for the various types of television pro- grams. In other the success of some of the new fall television comedy shows may depend as much as the subtle combination of slow and fast action on the screen as they do on the mate- rial and the actors. Nielsen's rating service might be able to do away with those few human television watchers altogether. But then some of the more cynical in Canada would undou- tedly suggest that Canadian television is normally so poor anyway that all TV viewing should be turned over to com- God bless their transis- tors. Dr. Coll suggests the com- puter monitoring techniques could be put to other uses. August 1973 tlTHBRIDOE HERALD 7 innnnn Your Local Independent Grocer 642 13th St. N.
