Kalfoglou, Yannis, Dasmahapatra, Srinandan, Dupplaw, David, Hu, Bo, Lewis, Paul and Shadbolt, Nigel (2006) Living with the Semantic Gap: Experiences and remedies in the context of medical imaging At 1st International Conference on Semantics and Digital Media Technologies, Greece.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)

Abstract

Semantic annotation of images is a key concern for the newly emerged applications of semantic multimedia. Machine processable descriptions of images make it possible to automate a variety of tasks from search and discovery to composition and collage of image data bases. However, the ever occurring problem of the semantic gap between the low level descriptors and the high level interpretation of an image poses new challenges and needs to be addressed before the full potential of semantic multimedia can be realised. We explore the possibilities and lessons learnt with applied semantic multimedia from our engagement with medical imaging where we deployed ontologies and a novel distributed architecture to provide semantic annotation, decision support and methods for tackling the semantic gap problem.
