Spencer’s final project idea

March 13, 2010

Last semester, I took the Information Retrieval (IR) class. When I worked on the final paper, which was about multimedia information retrieval, I was fascinated by the complexity and the progress of the development of multimedia IR.

Most of our online or databases searches are text-based. We use text to search for pictures, music, or video clips. But what if we can use a picture and ask the database to look for similar ones? Or use a section of recorded live music to search for the CD-version of the same piece of music?

I would use this as the central topic of my final project, and things may develop in newer directions as time goes by.
