|Contents:||Multimedia retrieval is about the search for and delivery of multimedia documents: images, sound, video, 3D scenes, and the combination of these.
This course deals with techniques, algorithms, and data structures for search query formulation, media description, matching of descriptions, indexing, visualization of retrieval results, relevance feedback, etc. However, the main goal is to become aware of the similarities and differences between several types of media and how to handle this.|
|Literature:||Eidenberger, H. (2012). Handbook of Multimedia Information Retrieval. Vienna, Austria: atpress. ISBN: 978-3-848-22283-4.
The book can be ordered at A-Eskwadraat. Alternatively, order the book via Amazon.com. Last year ordering via bol.com caused substantial problems; so, don't do that.
|Course form:||The course consists of lectures, compulsory work groups, presentations, and a project.|
A written exam about the topics of the lectures (40%) and project (60%).
To pass the course, the weighted average of your exam and project has to be at least 5.6 and the grades of the exam and the project each have to be at least 4.0.
|Minimum effort to qualify for 2nd chance exam:||Participation in the retake is only allowed if the grade of both the project and the exam is at least a 4.0.|
|Description:||This course has three main objectives:
- During a number of initial lectures, a critical amount of knowledge is
provided about multimedia retrieval: techniques, algorithms, and data structures for search query formulation, media description, matching of descriptions, indexing, visualization of retrieval results, relevance feedback, etc. However, the main goal is to become aware of the similarities and differences between several types of media and how to handle this.
- In order to experimentally evaluate various techniques, a practical assignment is done, involving the implementation of a retrieval method, and the assessment of the retrieval performance.
- Training in conducting scientific research, going from defining a verifiable research question to reporting the research's results in the form of an article. The aim is to extent the current state-of-the-art. As such, the course also prepares you for your MSc graduation project.
