Summary

In this course, we examine the aspects regarding building multimedia database systems and give an insight into the used techniques. The course deals with content-specific retrieval of multimedia data. Basic issue is the efficient storage and subsequent retrieval of multimedia documents.

The general structure of the course is:

  • Basic characteristics of multimedia databases
  • Evaluation of retrieval effectiveness, Precision-Recall Analysis
  • Semantic content of image-content search
  • Image representation, low-level and high-level features
  • Texture features, random-field models
  • Audio formats, sampling, metadata
  • Thematic search within music tracks
  • Query formulation in music databases
  • Media representation for video
  • Frame/Shot Detection, Event Detection
  • Video segmentation and video summarization
  • Video Indexing, MPEG-7
  • Extraction of low-and high-level features
  • Integration of features and efficient similarity comparison
  • Indexing over inverted file index, indexing Gemini, R *- trees
