Multimedia Search

Driven by the rapid advances in hardware and multimedia technologies, the deluge of multimedia data has recently flooded many computer science research fields. We have witnessed unprecedented interest in large-scale multimedia search, which has bridged different research areas with strong connections, including database management, multimedia analysis, information retrieval, computer vision, machine learning, image processing, etc. It has been emerging as a key technology to a broad range of critical application domains, from social service, security control, health management, to environment monitoring and astronomy study, amongst others. Our research on multimedia search covers feature selection and learning, content analysis, large-scale database management, indexing methods, ranking algorithms, social multimedia mining, heterogeneous media data integration, mobile media retrieval, and so on.
