1. [DEV] Integrated Visual Inspection Tool 

Background. The Visual Inspection Tool  (VIT) is a web-based tool developed in Javascript and HTML5, which allows the visual inspection and the annotation of multimodal datasets encoded with MLT-JSON data format. In the VIT, the expert can load the session files one by one to triangulate the video recording with the sensor data. The user can select and plot individual data attributes and inspect visually how they relate to a video recording. The VIT is also a tool for collecting expert annotations. In the case of CPR Tutor, the annotations were given as properties of every single chest compression.

Research Task. The VIT is meant to be used with the Multimodal Learning Hub. The VIT is able to load the MLT-JSON format. In its 2.0 version, the LearningHub is evolving its data format, which instead of using a batch-based approach it will use a streaming approach using Kafka and the Data Lake. This research task consists in using re-engineering the VIT to have it an integrated tool with the back-end of the Kafka infrastructure.
