Abstract:  Multimedia items account for an important part of Linked Open Data (LOD), but currently most of the semantic relations between multimedia items and semantic knowledge base (KB) are based on manual semantic annotation. With the popularity of multimedia hosting websites, plentiful tagging information makes it possible to automatically generate semantic relations between multimedia items and KB. In this paper, we propose a mechanism for linking multimedia items to KB with user-generated tags, while taking into account top-ical semantic similarity between tags. Experimental results show the effect of our work on this task.
