Abstract

Manually annotating content such as Internet videos, is an intellectually expensive and time consuming process. Furthermore, keywords and community-provided tags lack consistency and present numerous irregularities. Addressing the challenge of simplifying and improving the process of tagging online videos, which is potentially not bounded to any particular domain, we present an algorithm for predicting user-tags from the associated textual metadata in this paper. Our approach is centred around extracting named entities exploiting complementary textual resources such as Wikipedia and Wordnet. More specifically to facilitate the extraction of semantically meaningful tags from a largely unstructured textual corpus we developed a natural language processing framework based on GATE architecture. Extending the functionalities of the in-built GATE named entities, the framework integrates a bag-of-articles algorithm for effectively searching through the Wikipedia articles for extracting relevant articles. The proposed framework has been evaluated against MediaEval 2010 Wild Wild Web dataset, which consists of large collection of Internet videos.
