Using ontologies and fuzzy relations in the multimedia personalization process

1st International Workshop on Semantic Media Adaptation and Personalization, Athens, Greece, December 2006.

In this paper we extend on previous work in order to address the problem of multimedia personalization at a semantic level. In different previous works we have developed algorithms to address computationally efficient handling of large but sparse fuzzy relations, and theory to address knowledge representation, thematic categorization and user modeling. In this work we take two further steps: i) we integrate ontologies in our original knowledge modeling approach and ii) we explain how these diverse algorithms and methodologies can be combined in order to approach a greater goal, that of semantic multimedia personalization.
