Content-Based Exploration of Multimedia Databases

Usability, effectiveness, and efficiency are the fundamental properties of content-based multimedia exploration systems. While the usability of an exploration system is frequently ensured by intuitive and interactive visual interfaces, the effectiveness of the retrieval results and the efficiency of the exploration process are typically obtained by high quality similarity models and fast query evaluation strategies. As it is immensely important to maintain all the aforementioned properties concurrently in order to meet individual user requirements, we present a modular content-based multimedia exploration system facilitating the access and insight into large multimedia databases by incorporating state-of-the-art content-based methods and techniques. To this end, we first survey and analyze various techniques guaranteeing usability, effectiveness and efficiency, and then briefly introduce our modular exploration system.
