Emergence is a phenomenon where we study the implicit or hidden meaning of an image. We introduce this concept in image database access and retrieval of images using this as an index for retrieval. This would give an entirely different search outcome than ordinary than search where emergence is not considered, as consideration of hidden meanings could change the index of search. We discuss emergence, emergence index and approach how to apply this concept in image retrieval in this chapter.
