We present the Smart Image Retrieval meta-search engine that allows content-based exploration of the results obtained from various sources (mostly based on keyword query). The online feature extraction architecture and exploration models utilizing single-/multi-query approaches are the two key features of our demo application that shows very promising results.


Keyword Query Quadratic Form Distance Incremental Model Learning Demo Application Image Feature Signature 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
