A Prototype for a Distributed Image Retrieval System
- 433 Downloads
This paper gives an overview over different techniques necessary for the realisation of distributed image retrieval systems by considering a running prototype Cairo as an example. Cairo uses the performance capabilities of a cluster architecture for the realisation of a highquality, object-based image analysis and search. Integrated scheduling algorithms balance the workload over the available nodes and minimise the communication within the cluster.
