"Bridging the semantic gap" is an expression often used to describe work on multimedia content understanding. At best, research today is bridging a semantic gap, of which there are many. Better characterizing the overall size and shape of the semantic space for multimedia will help define what is on the other side and ensure that we make progress on bridging the gap.
