Using Context and a Genetic Algorithm for Knowledge-Assisted Image Analysis

1st International Conference on Semantics And Digital Media Technology, Athens, Greece, December 2006.

In this poster, we present an approach to contextualized semantic image annotation as an optimization problem. Ontologies are used to capture general and contextual knowledge of the domain considered, and a genetic algorithm is applied to realize the final annotation. Experiments with images from the beach vacation domain demonstrate the performance of the proposed approach and illustrate the added value of utilizing contextual information.
