The increasing popularity of user-generated content (UGC) requires effective annotation techniques in order to facilitate precise content search and retrieval. In this paper, we propose a new approach for the semantic annotation of personal video content, taking advantage of user-contributed tags available in an image folksonomy. Video shots and folksonomy images are first represented by a semantic vector. Next, the semantic vectors are used to measure the semantic similarity between each video shot and the folksonomy images. Tags assigned to semantically similar folksonomy images are then used to annotate the video shots. To verify the effectiveness of the proposed annotation method, experiments were performed with video sequences retrieved from YouTube and images downloaded from Flickr. Our experimental results demonstrate that the proposed method is able to successfully annotate personal video content with user-contributed tags retrieved from an image folksonomy. In addition, the size of our tag vocabulary is significantly higher than the size of the tag vocabulary used by conventional annotation methods.
