About this Item

376 pages. This book focuses on the tools of processing and searching applicable to the content based management of new multimedia documents. Multimedia Information Retrieval (MMIR), the organic system made up of Text Retrieval (TR); Visual Retrieval (VR); Video Retrieval (VDR); and Audio Retrieval (AR) systems, has been developed to help manage the processing and searching of multimedia documents. Since each type of digital document must be analyzed and searched for by the elements of language appropriate to its nature, search criteria must be extended. Such an approach is known as the Content Based Information Retrieval (CBIR), and is the core of MMIR. Translated from Italian by Giles Smith, the book is divided into two parts, with part one discussing MMIR and related theories and putting forward new methodologies. Part two reviews various experimental and operating MMIR systems and presents technical and practical conclusions. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory # 9781843347224

About this title

Synopsis:

Novel processing and searching tools for the management of new multimedia documents have developed. Multimedia Information Retrieval (MIR) is an organic system made up of Text Retrieval (TR); Visual Retrieval (VR); Video Retrieval (VDR); and Audio Retrieval (AR) systems. So that each type of digital document may be analysed and searched by the elements of language appropriate to its nature, search criteria must be extended. Such an approach is known as the Content Based Information Retrieval (CBIR), and is the core of MIR. This novel content-based concept of information handling needs to be integrated with more traditional semantics. Multimedia Information Retrieval focuses on the tools of processing and searching applicable to the content-based management of new multimedia documents. Translated from Italian by Giles Smith, the book is divided into two parts. Part one discusses MIR and related theories, and puts forward new methodologies; part two reviews various experimental and operating MIR systems, and presents technical and practical conclusions.

  • Gives a complete, organic picture of MIR and CBIR
  • Proposes a novel conceptualisation around the ideas of Information Retrieval (IR) and digital document management in the context of Library and Information Science (LIS)
  • Relevant for both library and information science and information technology specialists
