A Community-Aware Framework for Standardized Semantic Annotation of Web Multimedia by Use of RESTful Web Services
The aim of this thesis is to conceive a framework for collaborative semantic annotation of multimedia via RESTful Web Services with respect to communities of practice.
Tagging is of great importance in Web2.0 settings because it provides good support for searching and linking content across the Internet. Through use of online collaborative technologies and semantic support, the precision of the metadata describing different types of resources can be drastically improved. Furthermore, such a solution is well suitable with evolving shared repertoires within communities of practice.
