Lyndon Kennedy (Columbia University, USA): “Advanced techniques for multimedia search: Leveraging cues from content and structure,” 2009. Advised by Prof. Shih-Fu Chang.
This thesis investigates a number of advanced directions and techniques in multimedia search with a focus on search over visual content and its associated multimedia information. This topic is of interest as the size and availability of multimedia databases are rapidly multiplying and users have increasing need for methods for indexing and accessing these collections in a variety of applications, including Web image search, personal photo collections, and biomedical applications, among others. The primary challenge is to leverage the diverse cues contained in these data sets to index the semantic visual content of the documents in the database and make them accessible through simple query interfaces. The goal of this thesis is to develop a general framework for conducting these semantic visual searches and exploring new cues that can be leveraged for enhancing retrieval within this framework.
