Future Work

The theoretical foundations of the part indicate several opportunities for further related research, e.g.:

  • Development of an intuitive CBIR user interface

  • Support for spatial information integrated into the query language handle local objects

  • Integration of an efficient image segmentation algorithm

  • Implementation of powerful fv, such as shape matching

  • Focus on higher scalability, e.g. stronger use of index structures and heuristics

  • Application of other efficient learning techniques to build query descriptors

  • Use of query descriptors to replace keywords in CBIR queries or to label images with unknown content

  • Improvement of the Boolean ranking mechanisms, e.g. by applying Bayesian combination rules
