Une approche orientée service pour la recherche sémantique de contenus multimédias

Abstract : Multimedia data sources from various fields (medical, tourism, trade, art and culture, etc.) became essential on the web. Accessing to multimedia data in distributed systems poses new challenges due to many system parameters: volume, diversity of interfaces, representation format, location, etc. In addition, the growing needs of users and applications to incorporate semantics in the information retrieval pose new issues. To take into account this new complexity, we are interested in our research of data integration solutions based on web services. In this thesis, we propose an approach-oriented service for the semantic search of multimedia content. We called this approach SeSaM (Semantic Search of Multimedia content). SeSaM is based on the definition of a new pattern of services to access multimedia content, which is the MaaS services (Multimedia as a Services). It is based on a two-phase process: description and discovery of MaaS services. As for the MaaS services description, we have defined the SA4MaaS language (Semantic Annotation for MaaS services), which is an extension of SAWSDL (W3C recommendation). The main idea of this language is the integration, in addition to business domain semantic, of multimedia information semantics in the MaaS services description. As for the MaaS service discovery, we have proposed a new matchmaker MaaS-MX (MaaS services Matchmaker) adapted to the MaaS services description model. MaaS-MX is composed of two essential steps: domain matching and multimedia matching. Domain matching consists in comparing the business domain description of MaaS services and the query, whereas multimedia matching compares the multimedia description of MaaS services and the query. The approach has been implemented and evaluated in two different domains: medical and tourism. The results indicate that using both domain and multimedia matching considerably improves the performance of multimedia data retrieving systems.
