Program Type



Most content-based multimedia information retrieval systems rely on similarity measurements (e.g. Euclidean distance) based on low level features (e.g., color and tecture). Recently, in multimedia information research area, focus has significantly shifted towards extracting multimedia semantics. Therefore, new approaches to multimedia information retrieval are required to meet these new developments.This project is to develop multimedia information retrieval approaches by accounting for the semantic representation of multimedia data as well as visualization techniques for better interface design of multimedia information retrieval systems.
