About the book
Considering the increasing globalization in the world and the explosion of media available on the Internet, computer techniques to organize, classify and find desired media are becoming more and more relevant. In order to extract semantic information from multimedia data sources, the technique of Multimedia Information Retrieval (MMIR or MIR) has progressed over the years. Multimedia Information Retrieval is a very broad area covering both structural issues and intelligent content analysis and retrieval. These aspects must be integrated into a seamless whole which involves expertise from a wide variety of fields. In this context, the latest advances in the field include aspects related to bionformation analysis and social media interaction; although this technique has been usually applied to text, audio, image, and video.
In this book, recent applications of Multimedia Information Retrieval are presented based on summarization, filtering and categorization methods, among others. Therefore, this book aims at showing Multimedia Information Retrieval cutting-edge scenarios.
