Title: Semantically connected web resources with MPEG-21
Issue Date: 2015
Abstract: The Web is rapidly becoming the prime medium for human socialization. Theresources that enable that process (social web sites, blogs, media objects, etc.) present growingcomplexity and, collectively, weave an ever more intricate web of relationships. Currenttechnology for declaring those relationships is predominantly implicit, ambiguous and semanticallypoor. As a consequence, their automatic assessment is complex and error prone,preventing the satisfaction of users needs such as effective semantic searches. To address theselimitations, whilst enabling the explicit declaration of semantically unambiguous relationshipsbetween digital resources, a solution employing structured semantic descriptors and ontologieswas conceived, based on MPEG-21. This paper explains the functioning of the devisedmechanism, and goes beyond that, into the definition of two novel employment venues for it,at the service of two real-world usage scenarios. These demonstrate the mechanisms addedvalue as a powerful alternative for the semantically aware interconnection of web resources, andhighlight the increased QoE that said mechanism enables.
