Using the Semantic Web for Enhanced Audio Experiences
In this paper, we give a quick overview of some key Semantic Web technologies which allow us to overcome the limitations of the current web of documents to create a machine-processable web of data, where information is accessible by automated means. We then detail a framework for dealing with audio-related information on the Semantic Web: the Music Ontology. We describe some examples of how this ontology has been used to link together heterogeneous data sets, dealing with editorial, cultural or acoustic data. Finally, we explain a methodology to embed such knowledge into audio applications (from digital jukeboxes and digital archives to audio editors and sequencers), along with concrete examples and implementations.
