Semantic Federation of Musical and Music-Related Information for Establishing a Personal Music Knowledge Base

Semantic Federation of Musical and Music-Related Information for Establishing a Personal Music Knowledge Base

Published by Bob Ferris
Music is perceived and described very subjectively by every individual. Nowadays, people often get lost in their steadily growing, multi-placed, digital music collection. Existing music player and management applications get in trouble when dealing with poor metadata that is predominant in personal music collections. There are several music information services available that assist users by providing tools for precisely organising their music collection, or for presenting them new insights into their own music library and listening habits. However, it is still not the case that music consumers can seamlessly interact with all these auxiliary services directly from the place where they access their music individually. To profit from the manifold music and music-related knowledge that is or can be available via various information services, this information has to be gathered up, semantically federated, and integrated into a uniform knowledge base that can personalised represent this data in an appropriate visualisation to the users. This personalised semantic aggregation of music metadata from several sources is the gist of this thesis. The outlined solution particularly concentrates on users’ needs regarding music collection management which can strongly alternate between single human beings. The author’s proposal, the personal music knowledge base (PMKB), consists of a client-server architecture with uniform communication endpoints and an ontological knowledge representation model format that is able to represent the versatile information of its use cases. The PMKB concept is appropriate to cover the complete information flow life cycle, including the processes of user account initialisation, information service choice, individual information extraction, and proactive update notification. The PMKB implementation makes use of SemanticWeb technologies. Particularly the knowledge representation part of the PMKB vision is explained in this work. Several new Semantic Web ontologies are defined or existing ones are massively modified to meet the requirements of a personalised semantic federation of music and music-related data for managing personal music collections. The outcome is, amongst others, • a new vocabulary for describing the play back domain, • another one for representing information service categorisations and quality ratings, and • one that unites the beneficial parts of the existing advanced user modelling ontologies. The introduced vocabularies can be perfectly utilised in conjunction with the existing Music Ontology framework. Some RDFizers that also make use of the outlined ontologies in their mapping definitions, illustrate the fitness in practise of these specifications. A social evaluation method is applied to carry out an examination dealing with the reutilisation, application and feedback of the vocabularies that are explained in this work. This analysis shows that it is a good practise to properly publish Semantic Web ontologies with the help of some Linked Data principles and further basic SEO techniques to easily reach the searching audience, to avoid duplicates of such KR specifications, and, last but not least, to directly establish a "shared understanding". Due to their project-independence, the proposed vocabularies can be deployed in every knowledge representation model that needs their knowledge representation capacities. This thesis added its value to make the vision of a personal music knowledge base come true.

Personal Music Knowledge Base
ABSTRACT
Music is perceived and described very subjectively by every individual. Nowadays, people oftenget lost in their steadily growing, multi-placed, digital music collection. Existing music player andmanagement applications get in trouble when dealing with poor metadata that is predominantin personal music collections. There are several music information services available that assistusers by providing tools for precisely organising their music collection, or for presenting themnew insights into their own music library and listening habits. However, it is still not the case thatmusic consumers can seamlessly interact with all these auxiliary services directly from the placewhere they access their music individually.To profit from the manifold music and music-related knowledge that is or can be available viavarious information services, this information has to be gathered up, semantically federated,and integrated into a uniform knowledge base that can personalised represent this data in anappropriate visualisation to the users. This personalised semantic aggregation of music metadatafrom several sources is the gist of this thesis. The outlined solution particularly concentrateson users’ needs regarding music collection management which can strongly alternate betweensingle human beings.The author’s proposal, the
personal music knowledge base 
(PMKB), consists of a client-serverarchitecture with uniform communication endpoints and an ontological knowledge representationmodel format that is able to represent the versatile information of its use cases. The PMKBconcept is appropriate to cover the complete information flow life cycle, including the processesof user account initialisation, information service choice, individual information extraction, andproactive update notification.The PMKBimplementation makesuse ofSemantic Web technologies. Particularly the knowledgerepresentation part of the PMKB vision is explained in this work. Several new Semantic Webontologies are defined or existing ones are massively modified to meet the requirements of apersonalised semantic federation of music and music-related data for managing personal musiccollections. The outcome is, amongst others,a new vocabulary for describing the
play back 
domain,another one for representing information service categorisations and quality ratings, andone that unites the beneficial parts of the existing advanced user modelling ontologies.The introduced vocabularies can be perfectly utilised in conjunction with the existing Music On-tology framework. Some
RDFizers 
that also make use of the outlined ontologies in their mappingdefinitions, illustrate the fitness in practise of these specifications.A social evaluation method is applied to carry out an examination dealing with the reutilisation,application and feedback of the vocabularies that are explained in this work. This analysis showsthat it is a good practise to properly publish Semantic Web ontologies with the help of someLinked Data principles and further basic SEO techniques to easily reach the searching audience,to avoid duplicates of such KR specifications, and, last but not least, to directly establish a "sharedunderstanding". Due to their project-independence, the proposed vocabularies can be deployedin every knowledge representation model that needs their knowledge representation capacities.This thesis added its value to make the vision of a
personal music knowledge base 
come true.
