PAI Jules Verne with University of Reykjavik
This work is supported by Égide.
Image databases and therefore content-based retrieval systems have become increasingly important in many applications areas. While extremely effective (they return high quality results), these techniques are very inefficient (they answer very slowly) due to their complexity and because of the inadequacy of traditional operating system support.
The goal of this project is to develop techniques that integrate efficiency and effectiveness in content-based image retrieval systems. The long-term benefits of this work are expected to be much improved image retrieval systems that are key for emerging applications.
