Effective management and exploitation of multimedia documents requires extraction of the underlying semantics. Multimedia analysis algorithms can produce fairly rich but imprecise information about a multimedia document. In this paper, a multimedia reasoning architecture is presented using the fuzzy extension of expressive SHIN , f-SHIN . First a segmentation algorithm generates a set of oversegmented regions and a classification process is employed to assign those regions with semantic labels.
