The Journal of Semantic Computing has issued the following call for papers:
In the new millennium Multimedia Computing plays an increasingly important role as more and more users produce and share a constantly growing amount of multimedia documents. The sheer number of documents available in large media repositories or even the World Wide Web makes indexing and retrieval of multimedia documents as well as browsing and annotation more important tasks than ever before. Research in this area is of great importance because of the very limited understanding of the semantics of such data sources as well as the limited ways in which they can be accessed by the users today. The field of Semantic Computing has much to offer with respect to these challenges. This special issue invites articles that bring together Semantic Computing and Multimedia to address the challenges arising by the constant growth of Multimedia.

Personally I would argue there is “…very limited understanding of the semantics of … [all] data sources….”
Multimedia documents are more popular and expected so the failure there may be more visible.
