Abstract :

The 21st century began with a major disruption: the rapid rise of smartphones meant that capturing, storing, and sharing photos and their context became easier than using text. Photos and videos communicate directly, without the need for language or literacy. Thus, everyone in the world with a phone is a potential prosumer who can generate as well as consume these new documents. A photo represents information and experience related to a moment. A photo may be linked to many other photos along different dimensions. One may also create explicit links among photos or objects in photos. All photos on the Web form a Visual Web that links photos with other photos and other information elements including all documents on the WWW. This Visual Web offers opportunities to address many difficult yet unsolved problems. We will discuss role of photos as powerful information sources, technical challenges, and some interesting opportunities in this area. We will present a prototype system that could be used for creating such a system and outline technical challenges.
