Harvesting for Full-Text Retrieval [chapter]

Fabio Simeoni, Murat Yakici, Steve Neely, Fabio Crestani
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Inspired by the success of the Open Archive Initiative's protocol for metadata harvesting, the approach occupies middle ground between: (i) the crawling of content, and (ii) the distribution of retrieval  ...  We show that the approach retains the good properties of centralised retrieval without renouncing to cost-effective resource pooling.  ...  At each provider, a dissemination service implements the server side of the OAI-PMH and resolves protocol requests by: (i) executing a fixed range of queries against the metadata database, and (ii) mapping  ...

Content-based image retrieval speedup [article]

Sadegh Fadaei and Abdolreza Rashno and Elyas Rashno
2019 arXiv   pre-print
Content-based image retrieval (CBIR) is a task of retrieving images from their contents.  ...  Images in database which are out of the interval are ignored in retrieval process. Therefore, a database reduction occurs before retrieval which leads to speed up.  ...  In [26] , a method for CBIR acceleration was proposed on the RDISK machine. This machine uses the philosophy of smart-disks and is considered as a cluster of FPGA-enhanced hard-drives.  ...
