Towards Personalised Multimedia Applications - A Literature Review

Sebastian Sastoque H., Oscar Avila, Marcela Iregui


Multimedia applications are now commonly used in daily life for several domains as marketing, health, learning and entertainment, among others. As the number of available applications increases, a competitive factor is the level of alignment to personal preferences. Indeed, the role of multimedia content has been crucial to generate user centred applications. However, multimedia content personalisation requires complex systems that execute diverse tasks such as representation, modelling, annotation and retrieval. Research on this field has been focused on content annotation and retrieval perspectives. Despite this, these domains do not address two of key personalisation factors, i.e., considering personal preferences and contextual knowledge. This work presents a literature review aimed to identify theoretical elements related to personalisation purposes, which could be integrated to the most common approaches. As a result, a road map for future research is established.
