abstract

The thesis focuses on effectively supporting a number of important user tasks in feature-vector (FV) multimedia databases. Specifically, we propose innovative methods for effective processing of content-based similarity queries; for feature space visualization for discrimination analysis; and for layout generation for object space analysis. The methods are evaluated on a number of specific multimedia object types such as 3D models, images, and time series data, but are expected to be useful in other multimedia domains as well.
