"Kompatsiars and Hobson have organized the chapters in a manner that is intended to provide a step-by-step guide to the basics of ontology technologies. … This book is a well-done collection of chapters on various aspects of multimedia ontologies and their applications. It is not only a good reference for those who are already doing research, but it also provides a good overview for those who are just beginning work in this area." (J. Hodges, ACM Computing Reviews, October, 2008)
