How to master the chaos in an endless sea of photographs? In the present age of digital photography, the sheer number of images creates a great need in the archiving of pictures. At this yearâs CeBIT trade fair (Hall 9, Stand B36), scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Information Technology FIT and the Fraunhofer Institute for Telecommunications HHI will be presenting new intelligent technologies designed to organize todayâs digital flood of photographs.
You can clearly see it in your mindâs eye: the photo you took three years ago in Malaga, when the whole family was gathered together on the beach at sunset. Now, where on earth could that photo be? Since the invention of the digital camera, photography has evolved into an increasingly popular pastime.

This is something that both professionals and trigger-happy amateur photographers have to struggle with on a daily basis.In future, a new system called aceMedia could relieve us of this tedious task. At the CeBIT trade fair, researchers from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Information Technology FIT will present a prototype developed in the EU-funded aceMedia project that independently and intelligently organizes photos when they are saved on the hard disk.
