A Semantic Web Annotation Tool for a Web-Based Audio Sequencer

  title={A Semantic Web Annotation Tool for a Web-Based Audio Sequencer},
  author={Luca Restagno and Vincent Akkermans and Giuseppe Rizzo and Antonio Servetti},
Music and sound have a rich semantic structure which is so clear to the composer and the listener, but that remains mostly hidden to computing machinery. Nevertheless, in recent years, the introduction of software tools for music production have enabled new opportunities for migrating this knowledge from humans to machines. A new generation of these tools may exploit sound samples and semantic information coupling for the creation not only of a musical, but also of a "semantic" composition. In… 
How Semantic Knowledge can Enhance the Access to PA Online Services
This paper proposes an approach based on formal ontologies and shows how they can provide a great enhancement in this direction and has been tested on a set of services provided by a local Italian Public Administration and results are encouraging.
Knowledge extraction from unstructured data and classification through distributed ontologies
This dissertation creates the Named Entity Recognition and Disambiguation (NERD) web framework, publicly accessible on the Web (through REST API and web User Interface), which unifies several named entity extraction technologies and proposed the NERD ontology, a reference ontology for comparing the results of these technologies.


Annotating Relationships Between Multiple Mixed-Media Digital Objects by Extending Annotea
This paper describes and compares alternative ways in which the Annotea Schema may be extended for the purpose of annotating links between multiple resources (or segments of resources) and concludes by identifying and recommending an optimum approach which will enhance the power, flexibility and applicability of Annotesa in many domains.
Annotea: an open RDF infrastructure for shared Web annotations
The paper presents the overall design of Annotea and describes some of the issues the project has faced and how it has solved them, including combining RDF with XPointer, XLink, and HTTP.
Metadata-driven interactive web video assembly
This paper proposes a novel concept to interactive video assembly on the Web where consumers may describe the desired content using a set of domain-specific parameters and, based on the metadata the video clips are annotated with, the system chooses clips fitting the user criteria.
M-OntoMat-Annotizer: Image Annotation Linking Ontologies and Multimedia Low-Level Features
This paper uses M-OntoMat-Annotizer in order to construct ontologies that include prototypical instances of high-level domain concepts together with a formal specification of corresponding visual descriptors, allowing for new kinds of multimedia content analysis, reasoning and retrieval.
Semantic Annotation of Web APIs with SWEET
This paper presents SWEET - Semantic Web sErvices Editing Tool - a lightweight Web application for creating semantic descriptions of Web APIs, thus contributing to the automation of the discovery, composition and invocation service tasks.
DBpedia - A crystallization point for the Web of Data
OWL 2 Web Ontology Language: structural specification and functional-style syntax
The OWL 2 Web Ontology Language, informally OWL 2, is an ontology language for the Semantic Web with formally defined meaning. OWL 2 ontologies provide classes, properties, individuals, and data
Media Meets Semantic Web - How the BBC Uses DBpedia and Linked Data to Make Connections
Current projects, ongoing development, and further research are described in a joint collaboration between the BBC, Freie Universitat Berlin and Rattle Research in order to use DBpedia as the controlled vocabulary and semantic backbone for the whole BBC.
The Semantic Web
The proposed approach has been implemented in the system CRION (Contrastive Reasoning with Inconsistent ONtologies) as a reasoning plug-in in the LarKC (Large Knowledge Collider) platform and shows that contrastive reasoning is a useful extension to the existing approaches of reasoning with inconsistent ontologies.
Exploiting Linked Data to Build Web Applications
This article shows how linked data sets can be exploited to build rich Web applications with little effort.
