The Workshop on Multimedia Ontologies and AI Techniques (MOAIL 2007) was held as part of the Jurix 2007 conference in Leiden and organised by Xavier Binefa (ETSE-UAB), Marie-Francine Moens (KULeuven), José-Manuel López-Cobo (iSOCO) and Pompeu Casanovas (IDT-UAB).
Multimedia and law is an emerging and promising field. The increasing use of multimedia in courts, parliaments, ministries and other legal institutions expands the domain of semantic mining tools to legal audio and video repositories.This Workshop aimed at establishing the state of the art in this field. Cross-media knowledge representations and reasoning and navigation tools may be developed and implemented. Semantics may be used to extract, categorize, index, structure and present visual and audio material. Legal ontologies and multimedia ontologies may be aligned and merged. We face new problems like diarization, the link between images and legal knowledge or the connection between emotions and face recognition.
