Description:

> Recent Research in Multimedia Semantics and the Role of Metadata

Research in the field of multimedia metadata is especially challenging:
Lots of scientific publications and reports on research projects are
published every year and the range of possible applications is diverse and
huge. This book gives an overview on fundamental issues within the field of
multimedia metadata focusing on contextualized, ubiquitous, accessible and
interoperable services on a higher semantic level. The book in hand
provides a selection of basic articles being a base for multimedia metadata
research. Furthermore it presents a view on the current state of the art in
multimedia metadata research. It provides information from versatile
applications domains (Broadcasting, Interactive TV, E-Learning and Social
Software) such as:

* Multimedia on the Web 2.0
* Databases for Multimedia (Meta-)Data
* Multimedia Information Retrieval & Evaluation
* Multimedia Metadata Standards
* Ontologies for Multimedia

The multimedia metadata community (http://www.multimedia-metadata.info),
wherefrom this book originated, brings together experts from research and
industry in the area of multimedia metadata research and application
development. The community bridges the gap between an academic research and
an industrial scale development of innovative products. By summarizing the
work of the community this book contributes to the aforementioned fields by
addressing these topics for a broad range of readers.
