COMM: Designing a Well-Founded Multimedia Ontology for the Web
A paper written by Richard Arndt, Raphael Troncy, Steffen Staab, Lynda Hardman and Miroslav Vacura. It was presented at the ISWC2007+ASWC2007. It is about Applications of the Semantic Web technologies and Semantic Web content creation, annotation, and extraction
Semantic descriptions of non-textual media available on the web can be used to facilitate retrieval and presentation of media assets and documents containing them. While technologies for multimedia semantic descriptions already exist, there is as yet no formal description of a high quality multimedia ontology that is compatible with existing (semantic) web technologies. We explain the complexity of the problem using an annotation scenario. We then derive a number of requirements for specifying a formal multimedia ontology before we present the developed ontology, COMM, and evaluate it with respect to our requirements. We implement an API for generating multimedia annotations that conform to COMM.
