Description

The aim of the SCHEMA Network of Excellence is to bring together a critical mass of industrial partners, end users, universities and research centres in order to improve the systematic exchange of information on Content-Based Semantic Scene Analysis & Information Retrieval.

The following new research topics, activities and standards will be investigated in the SCHEMA Network:

  • Access to the information using query structures that come naturally to human beings,
  • Retrieval processes which understand the nature of the information in the database,
  • Content-based multimedia analysis,
  • Copyright issues of multimedia,
  • New methods for multimedia access and delivery,
  • Semantic web technologies,
  • MPEG-7 and MPEG-21 standards,
  • User interfaces and human factors.
