About this book


Multimedia Database Retrieval: A Human-Centered Approach presents the
latest development in user-centered methods and the state-of-the-art in
visual media retrieval.  It includes discussion on perceptually inspired
non-linear paradigm in user-controlled interactive retrieval (UCIR)
systems. It also features a coherent approach which focuses on specific topics
within content/concept-based retrievals via audio-visual information modeling
of multimedia.

Highlights include:

* Exploring an adaptive machine that can learn from its

* Optimizing the learning system by incorporating self-organizing
adaptation into the retrieval process

* Demonstrating state-of-the-art applications within small,
medium, and large databases

The authors also include applications related to Digital Asset
Management (DAM), Computer Aided Referral (CAR) System, Geographical
Database Retrieval, retrieval of Art Documents, and Films and Video

Multimedia Database Retrieval: A Human-Centered Approach presents the
fundamental and advanced aspects of these topics, as well as the
philosophical directions in the field.  The methods detailed in this
book possess broad applications which will advance the technology in
