An Ontology Design Pattern for Digital Video

  title={An Ontology Design Pattern for Digital Video},
  author={Panagiotis Mitzias and Marina Riga and Simon Waddington and Efstratios Kontopoulos and Georgios Meditskos and Pip Laurenson and Yiannis Kompatsiaris},
In this paper we introduce an ODP for representing digital video resources. The aim is to model digital video files, their components and other associated entities, such as codecs and containers. The proposed design pattern facilitates the creation of relevant domain ontologies that will be deployed in the fields of media archiving and digital preservation of videos and video artworks. This ODP has been developed within the PERICLES FP7 project.

Ontology-based representation of context of use in digital preservation

This paper addresses the issue of representing context and use-context (i.e. context of use) of digital content, by proposing an ontology-based representation approach, which is based on the LRM, an upper-level ontology for describing dependencies between digital resources.

Dependency modelling for inconsistency management in Digital Preservation – The PERICLES approach

One of the key outcomes of the PERICLES FP7 project, the Linked Resource Model, is presented for modelling dependencies as a set of evolving linked resources, and the adoption of the proposed model and the consistency of its representation are evaluated.

SemaDrift: A Protégé Plugin for Measuring Semantic Drift in Ontologies

A novel software tool is presented that integrates currently investigated methods, such as text and structural similarity, into the popular ontology authoring platform, Protégé, and provides knowledge engineers and domain experts with access to methods and results without prior programming knowledge.

The SemaDrift Protégé Plugin to Measure Semantic Drift in Ontologies: Lessons Learned

The findings, current limitations and lessons learned throughout the development and the application of a novel software tool, developed in the context of the PERICLES FP7 project, which integrates currently investigated methods, such as text and structural similarity, into the popular ontology authoring platform, Protege.

PERICLES – Digital Preservation through Management of Change in Evolving Ecosystems.

Management of change is essential to ensure the long-term reusability of digital assets and to bring about change can be brought about through technological, user community and policy factors.

A Framework for Measuring Semantic Drift in Ontologies

This paper presents a framework for measuring semantic drift in ontologies across time or multiple versions, using text and structural similarity methods to provide valuable insights.



COMM: Designing a Well-Founded Multimedia Ontology for the Web

This work derives a number of requirements for specifying a formal multimedia ontology before presenting the developed ontology, COMM, and evaluating it with respect to its requirements.

Semantic Integration and Retrieval of Multimedia Metadata

A complete and automatic mapping of the whole MPEG-7 standard to OWL has been set up based on XML2OWL mapping and XML2RDF mapping to move multimedia metadata to semantic web.The generated explicit

Adding Multimedia to the Semantic Web: Building an MPEG-7 ontology

The trials and tribulations of building such an ontology represented in RDF Schema are described and it is demonstrated how this ontology can be exploited and reused by other communities on the semantic web to enable the inclusion and exchange of multimedia content through a common understanding of the associated MPEG-7 multimedia content descriptions.

Using Multimedia Ontology for Generating Conceptual Annotations and Hyperlinks in Video Collections

This work presents a novel approach for defining video domain concepts in an ontology using properties that can be observed from the media and proposes the use of Bayesian network as the reasoning mechanism for doing inferencing tasks in the presence of uncertainty.

GraphOnto: OWL-Based Ontology Management and Multimedia Annotation in the DS-MIRF Framework

GraphOnto is a software component and an API that allow the definition and editing of both standard-based and domain OWL ontologies and their use in multimedia information system components and clearly outperforms Protégé.

Capturing MPEG-7 Semantics

The rationale on which the relevant approaches to attaching formal semantics to the MPEG-7 specifications are examined is examined, and building on the experiences gained, the approach followed in the BOEMIE project is presented.

DOLCE ergo SUMO: On Foundational and Domain Models in SWIntO (SmartWeb Integrated Ontology)

A foundational ontology is developed, the SmartSUMO ontology, on the basis of the DOLCE and SUMO ontologies, which allows to combine all the developed ontologies into a single SmartWeb Integrated Ontology.
