Research output: Contribution to journalEditorialpeer-review


The World-Wide Web provides tremendous resources in Multimedia Data, Ubiquitous Interconnection, and Storage/Computing Power. In this short note, we raise but not answer the question: Can the WWW help bridge the Semantic Gap in Computer Vision? Even if the answer turns out to be NO, we hope that by exploring these resources, we may gain a deeper understanding of the Semantic Gap challenge.
