Full Description
This book draws together experts from the multimedia, the knowledge and the integrated multimedia-knowledge domains to explore how knowledge technologies can be exploited to create new multimedia applications, and how multimedia technologies can provide new contexts for the use of knowledge technologies. The step-by-step approach guides the reader from fundamental enabling technologies of ontologies, analysis and reasoning, through to applications which have hitherto had less attention such as personalisation of multimedia content and personalised content adaptation. Thorough coverage of all relevant topics is given, including ontologies for low level multimedia feature representation, higher level multimedia systems representations, application of multimedia ontologies for visual analysis and finally usage of multimedia and knowledge technologies for applications. Presenting a fundamental work which can serve as a reference book for researchers and graduate students going forward, this book is an invaluable tool.
