In this panel, representatives of PBCore and EBUCore will discuss the latest developments in the standardization of audiovisual metadata and how those standards can be implemented in real-world use cases. PBCore is primarily an XML-based standard, while EBUCore is both an XML-based standard and a fully-fledged RDF ontology. In 2015, PBCore and EBUCore began the process of developing a roadmap between PBCore XML to EBUCore RDF by unifying the existing vocabularies of both metadata standards. As a result of the NEH-funded PBCore Development and Training Project, a mapping between the two standards is now complete and available on the updated PBCore website, along with updated tools and documentation supporting standardized audiovisual metadata (including a Cataloging Tool, an XML Validator, and improved MediaInfo support, among others). The panel will include demonstrations of the new website and metadata tools, a discussion of the use cases for the PBCore and EBUCore data models and semantic web applications, and a conversation about the future of a/v metadata, including the implications of AI for metadata enrichment.
