The Semantics of Smell

Keynote

The human sense of smell is one of our most sensitive senses and a powerful warning system for potentially dangerous situations such as rotten food or a gas leak. However, detecting references to smell and representing these in a machine interpretable format is as yet an under-researched topic in computer vision, natural language processing and the semantic web. In this talk, I will explain how the Odeuropa project aims to rediscover our olfactory heritage through an interdisciplinary approach that includes a team of language technology, computer vision, and semantic web experts, historians, and museologists.
