Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In multimedia applications information is presented in different forms, such as text, picture, audio and video. As the volume of data increases, it is difficult to archive, access and retrieve information. This paper discusses various issues related to retrieving information in different formats. An overview of both existing and evolving approaches will be presented. A general architecture of a multimedia retrieval system and our initial efforts towards building that system will also be given.
