Black Star Information Extraction#

A major advantage of the Black Star File System (BSFS) is its ability to store various kinds of (meta)data associated with a file. However, the BSFS itself is only a storage solution, it does not inspect files or collect information about them.

The Black Star Information Extraction (BSIE) package fills this gap by extracting various kinds of information from a file and pushing that data to a BSFS instance.

BSIE has the ability to process numerous file formats, and it can turn various aspects of a file into usable information. This includes metadata from a source file system, metadata stored within the file, and even excerpts or feature representations of the file’s content itself.
