Virtual multimedia libraries built from the web

Neil C. Rowe
2002 Proceedings of the second ACM/IEEE-CS joint conference on Digital libraries - JCDL '02  
We have developed a tool MARIE-4 for building virtual libraries of multimedia (images, video, and audio) by automatically exploring (crawling) a specified subdomain of the World Wide Web to create an index  ...  based on caption keywords.  ...  INTRODUCTION The World Wide Web provides a vast number of images and increasing numbers of video and audio.  ...

Image Retrieval from the World Wide Web

M. L. Kherfi, D. Ziou, A. Bernardi
2004 ACM Computing Surveys  
With the explosive growth of the World Wide Web, the public is gaining access to massive amounts of information.  ...  However, despite the large number of images available on the Web, image search engines are still rare.  ...  The World Wide Web is full of such images, but tools for automatic retrieval are needed to help tourists and travelers benefit from them.  ...

Automatically Determining Semantics for World Wide Web Multimedia Information Retrieval

SOUGATA MUKHERJEA, JUNGHOO CHO
1999 Journal of Visual Languages and Computing  
Search engines are useful because they allow the user to find information of interest from the World Wide Web (WWW).  ...  We explain how we assign keywords to the images based on HTML pages and the method to determine similar images based on the assigned text.  ...  Introduction WITH THE EXPLOSIVE GROWTH OF INFORMATION that is available through the World Wide Web (WWW), it is becoming increasingly difficult for the users to find the information of interest.  ...

TAG BASED IMAGE RETRIEVAL (TBIR) USING AUTOMATIC IMAGE ANNOTATION

Karthikram .
2014 International Journal of Research in Engineering and Technology  
Automatic Image Annotation (AIA) analyzes the missing and noisy tags and over-refines it to increase the performance of TBIR. AIA can be achieved using the Tag Completion algorithm.  ...  Based on the ranks, the images are indexed in the Tag matrix. Thus the images that match the search query can be retrieved in an optimal way.  ...  The search engines use the image processing techniques for finding the images from the World Wide Web.  ...
