BUSCAMEDIA: Towards a semantic adaptation of multinetwork-multiterminal digital media

BUSCAMEDIA is an spanish project (under CENIT-e program) that aims at the research in several lines to develop a true multimedia semantic search engine, based on a new revolutionary ontology defined within the project (M3 Ontology: multilingüal, multidomain & multimedia) that allows adaptation to any network, terminal, context and user, including professionals or end-users, in a better way than any existing technology in the world.

These are the main research lines in the project:

  • A multimedia content-based semantic search (text, images, audio & video) using natural language without human intervention (only the user that selects the multimedia search terms).
    • Advanced audio, video & images content annotation.
    • M3 ontology (multilingüal, multidomain & multimedia) to be used by the multimedia semantic search.
    • A natural language search that allows interacting with the search system.
  • A system to adapt the search to any device or file format in order to deliver the content to the user in a format adapted to the device, the user preferences or the context.
    • Research & developement to generate automatically M3 contents adapted to the needs of new users.
    • Personalization & contextualization to adapt the search results to user profiles in web 2.0 environments and towards web 3.0.
    • Content adaptation to allow a search result available to any terminal-device.
  • A new modelled architecture towards the cloud computing paradigms to allow:
    • fast and efficient search,
    • defining a data model based on semantics and the M3 ontology,
    • a system with privacity, security & interoperability.
