Image and Video Analysis

A relation-based contextual approach for efficient multimedia analysis

3rd International Workshop on Semantic Media Adaptation and Personalization, IEEE, Prague, Czech Republic, December 2008.

In this paper we present our research work on the identification of high-level concepts within multimedia documents through the introduction and utilization of contextual relations. A conceptual ontology is introduced, as the means of exploiting the visual context of images, in terms of high-level concepts and region types they consist of. A meaningful combination of these features results in a computationally efficient handling of visual context and extraction of mid-level characteristics towards the ultimate goal of semantic multimedia analysis. Evaluation results are presented on a medium-size dataset, consisting of 1435 images, 25 region types and 6 high-level concepts derived from the beach domain of interest.
