Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 8181)


With the rapid development of mobile intelligent devices and wireless communications, users are gradually changing the way of consuming interesting content from the traditional personal computers to smart phones. Hence, we introduce a brand-new content-based image similarity search system which runs on mobile platform in real time. This paper outlines the system which has several novel components, including multi-feature composition, multi-feature indexing, and customized user interface with auxiliary Web data display.
