In October the AXES system was demonstrated at two large BBC Archive Open days.
The objective was to show BBC staff how technology is changing and the need to adapt to work with different types of tools. Members of production and archive staff looked at the AXES system and they in turn asked about the different features being presented to them.
Visual search was very popular and questions were asked about how such a system may be used as part of their workflow. Searching for people attracted interest from staff at the BBC Photo Archive.
As new features come online AXES will be evaluating them with a range of end users.
