Abstract

In the previous chapters we saw the ‘GEMINI’ approach, which suggests that we rely on domain experts to derive k feature-extraction functions, thus mapping each object into a point in k-dimensional space. Then the problem is reduced to storing, retrieving and displaying k-dimensional points, for which there is a plethora of algorithms available.
