This comprehensive book draws together experts to explore how knowledge technologies can be exploited to create new multimedia applications, and how multimedia technologies can provide new contexts for the use of knowledge technologies. Thorough coverage of all relevant topics is given. The step-by-step approach guides the reader from fundamental enabling technologies of ontologies, analysis and reasoning, through to applications which have hitherto had less attention.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"Kompatsiars and Hobson have organized the chapters in a manner that is intended to provide a step-by-step guide to the basics of ontology technologies. . This book is a well-done collection of chapters on various aspects of multimedia ontologies and their applications. It is not only a good reference for those who are already doing research, but it also provides a good overview for those who are just beginning work in this area." (J. Hodges, ACM Computing Reviews, October, 2008)
