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 the technical aspect of multimedia retrieval such as techniques, algorithms, and data structures for search query formulation, media feature description, matching of descriptions, and indexing.

Course form:A number of lectures, an experimentation assignment.
Exam form:A written exam about the topics of the lectures (50%), experimentation assignment (50%).
Minimum effort to qualify for 2nd chance exam:Re-examinations is possible only if the grade was at least a 4, and consists of a written exam and/or an additional programming assignment.
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 evaluate various techniques, a practical assignment is done, involving the implementation of a retrieval method, and the assessment of the retrieval performance.
