Semantic Technologies

In recent years the Semantic Web has emerged as one of the most essential achievements for the future of the World Wide Web (WWW). Semantic Web technology extends the WWW but also enables to improve applications which are related to other fields such as communication, information, knowledge, media, and interaction technologies. Semantic Web provides not just new technologies and tools but also new paradigms and ways of thinking, to make information processing more efficient and more structured.

Our research is focussed on the devolpment and improvement of 'semantically supported multimedia retrieval and search technologies'.
