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, an experimentation assignment.
Exam form:Two written exams about the lectures (25% each), experimentation assignment (50%).
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 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.
