SPARQL Endpoints as Front-end for Multimedia Processing Algorithms

by Ruben Verborgh, Davy Van Deursen, Jos De Roo, Erik Mannens, and Rik Van de Walle

Multimedia processing algorithms in various domains often communicate with different proprietary protocols and representation formats, lacking a rigorous description. Furthermore, their capabilities and requirements are usually described by an informal textual description. While sufficient for manual and batch execution, these descriptions lack the expressiveness to enable automated invocation. The discovery of relevant algorithms and automated information exchange between them is virtually impossible. This paper presents a mechanism for accessing algorithms as SPARQL endpoints, which provides a formal protocol and representation format. Additionally, we describe algorithms using OWL-S, enabling automated discovery and information exchange. As a result, these algorithms can be applied autonomously in varying contexts. We illustrate our approach by a use case in which algorithms are employed automatically to solve a complex multimedia annotation problem.
