Multimedia indexing is about developing techniques allowing people to effectively find media. Content-based methods become necessary when dealing with large databases. Current technology allows exploring the emotional space which is known to carry very interesting semantic information. In this paper we state the need for an integrated method which extracts reliable affective information and attaches this semantic information to the medium itself. We describe SAMMI [1], a framework explicitly designed to fulfill this need and we present a list of possible applications pointing out the advantages that the emotional information can bring about. Finally, different scenarios are considered for the recognition of the emotions which involve different modalities, feature sets, fusion algorithms, and result optimization methods such as temporal averaging or thresholding.
