T8 - Semantic Web and Semantic Audio Technologies
Gyorgy Fazekas, Queen Mary University of London - London, UK
The emerging Semantic Web provides a powerful framework for the expression and reuse of structured data. Recent efforts have brought this framework to bear on the field of Semantic Audio, as well as information management in audio applications. This tutorial will provide an introduction to Semantic Web concepts and how they can be used in the context of music-related studies. We will outline the use of the Resource Description Framework (RDF) and related ontology and query languages. Using practical examples, we will demonstrate the use of the Music and Studio Ontologies, and show how they facilitate interoperability between audio applications and linked data sets on the Web. We will explore how signal processing tools and results can be described as structured data and utilized in audio production.
