Content-Based Image Retrieval
The use of digital images has increased enormously over recent years, however searching and browsing image databases efficiently remains a problem. To address this problem, JISC is commissioning a number of content-based image retrieval related studies, one of which is a state of the art report which will be produced at the University of Northumbria. The work will involve a survey of the current research and professional literature (including material on the World-Wide Web), together with discussions with UK and overseas researchers, major users of image data and representatives of standards bodies. As part of this project, the authors are interested in researchers' opinions on issues such as:
and practitioners' opinions on issues such as:
- the most important research questions that we should be tackling
- technical and human barriers to progress in adoption of CBIR techniques.
Anyone who wishes to contribute to this survey should contact John Eakins (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Margaret Graham (email@example.com) at the Institute for Image Data Research, University of Northumbria.
- how well informed are they on the capabilities of current CBIR systems
- how useful they consider such techniques are likely to be in managing image data.
