Benchmarking Access Structures for High-Dimensional Multimedia Data
Technical report TR99-05. In multimedia databases it is usual to map objects into feature vectors in high-dimensional spaces. In order to speed query processing access structures, or indices, are required. Unfortunately, in the case of similarity queries, which are in fact nearest neighbor ...
Content-Based Image Retrieval Using Binary Signatures
Technical report TR00-18. Significant research has focused on determining efficient methodologies for retrieving images in large image databases. In this paper, we propose two variations of a new image abstraction technique based on signature bit-strings and an appropriate similarity metric. The...
Cell Histograms Versus Color Histograms for Image Representation and Retrieval
Technical report TR01-01. Color is a commonly used feature for realizing content-based image retrieval (CBIR). In this context, this paper presents a new approach for CBIR which is based on well known and widely used color histograms. Previous approaches have used a single global color...
An Adaptive and Efficient Clustering-based Approach for Content Based Image Retrieval in Image Databases
An Adaptive and Efficient Clustering-based Approach for Content Based Image Retrieval in Image DatabasesDownload
Technical report TR01-03. In this paper, we present a new Content-Based Image Retrieval (CBIR) approach which is based on cluster analysis. A distinguishing aspect of CBIR is that it relies on a visual content representation (metadata) of the images. In order to produce such metadata, we propose...
A Unified Framework for Searching Multiple Compressed Collections
Technical report TR01-17. In this work, we propose a new framework for searching directly through multiple compressed collections. We combine, in a single framework, four techniques for efficient, low-overhead text retrieval: inverted index compression, block addressing, sequential searching in...
Color Based Image Retrieval Using Signature Trees
Technical report TR01-02. Significant research has focused on determining efficient methodologies for effective and speedy retrieval in large image databases. Towards that goal, the first contribution of this paper is an image abstraction technique, called VBA, based on signature bit-strings and...
Technical report TR02-01. Research in information hiding has grown explosively. A large number of techniques have been proposed to discourage copyright infringement, tampering and unauthorized distribution of digital media (e.g. video, audio, and images). In this paper, we provide an overview of...
Technical report TR05-23. Wireless sensor networks are made of autonomous devices that are able to collect information, store it, process it and share it with other devices. Such framework can be used to efficiently query spatiotemporal data, e.g., for monitoring humidity and temperature levels...
Technical report TR06-24. Wireless sensor networks have received much attention recently. Given their autonomy, flexibility and large range of functionality, they can be used as an effective and discrete means for monitoring data in many domains. Typically the network autonomy implies a limited...
Technical report TR08-02. We consider the problem of vehicle classification using acoustic signals captured within a sensor network. The sensors perform collaborative decision and/or data fusion in a distributed and energy efficient manner. We present a distributed cluster-based algorithm,...
