Ferran C, Giró-i-Nieto X, Marqués F, Casas J. BPT Enhancement based on Syntactic and Semantic criteria. In Semantic Multimedia. Berlin / Heidelberg: Springer; 2006. pp. 184–198.


This paper presents two enhancements for the creation and analysis of Binary Partition Trees (BPTs). Firstly, the classic creation of BPT based on colour is expanded to include syntactic criteria derived from human perception. Secondly, a method to include semantic information in the BPT analysis is shown thanks to the definition of the BPT Semantic Neighborhood and the introduction of Semantic Trees. Both techniques aim at bridging the semantic gap between signal and semantics following a bottom-up and a top-down approach, respectively.
