Knowledge Space of semantic inference for automatic annotation and retrieval of multimedia content

Logo: K-Space

K-Space is a network of leading research teams from academia and industry conducting integrative research and dissemination activities in semantic inference for automatic and semi-automatic annotation and retrieval of multimedia content. The aim of K-Space research is to narrow the gap between low-level content descriptions that can be computed automatically by a machine and the richness and subjectivity of semantics in high-level human interpretations of audiovisual media: The Semantic Gap. The Network of Excellence K-Space exploits the complementary expertise of project partners, enables resource optimization and fosters innovative research in the field.
