Contents: Multimedia retrieval is about the search and delivery of multimedia: images, sound, video, 3D scenes, and the combination of these. This course deals with the technical aspect of multimedia retrieval: techniques, algorithms, and data structures for search query formulation, media description, matching of descriptions, indexing, visualization of retrieval results, relevance feedback, etc.
Literature:Documents will be made available.
Course form:A number of lectures, a workshop, an experimentation assignment.
Exam form:A written exam about the lectures (50%), experimentation assignment (50%). Attendance of the workshop sessions (where the experimentation assignments are discussed) is mandatory.
Minimum effort to qualify for 2nd chance exam:Om aan de aanvullende toets te mogen meedoen is ontbreken van ten hoogte 1 toetsactiviteit toegestaan.
Description:During a number of initial lectures, a critical amount of knowledge is provided about he technical aspect of multimedia retrieval: techniques, algorithms, and data structures for search query formulation, media description, matching of descriptions, indexing, visualization of retrieval results, relevance feedback, etc. In a workshop, the class has to discuss and analyse one or problems of contemporary retrieval systems, propose a conceptual solution, and design an implementation of it. Attendance of the workshop sessions is mandatory. In order to experimentally verify various techniques, we will experiment with SMURF (Similarity-based Multimedia Retrieval Framework), a web-based experimentation platform for content-based retrieval. It allows to experiment with different types of multimedia collections, features, matching algorithms, indexing structures, user interfaces, etc. See http://give-lab.cs.uu.nl/Smurf/ for a demo of the framework.
