IMGpedia: a Large-scale Knowledge-base to perform Visuo-semantic Queries over Wikimedia Commons Images


Since its beginning, the Web of Data has been focused on the curation and production of machine-understandable representations of the textual information on the Web, being multimedia information mostly disregarded. In this talk, we present IMGpedia: a novel knowledge-base that automatically extracts visual features from Wikimedia Commons images in order to enable combining visual similarity queries amongst images with semantic filters.
