Sneak preview? instantly know what to expect in faceted video searching
This paper presents the Semantic Multimedia Explorer (SEMEX) a semantic search engine that supports exploratory video retrieval. SEMEX combines entities and content-based suggestions to support semantic search. The SEMEX interface provides facet filters, entity recommendations, a pagination and browsable search results; all of these elements are interconnected by instant “linking and brushing”. Hence SEMEX enables instantaneous visual feedback on how a selected search facet will affect the displayed result set.

By making the subsequent results available at fingertips, the SEMEX interface allows users to pursue related exploratory search strategies that lead to a genuinely responsive and quick browsing experience.
