Mining from Large Image Sets
So far, most image mining was based on interactive querying. Although such querying will remain important in the future, several applications need image mining at such wide scales that it has to run automatically. This adds an additional level to the problem, namely to apply appropriate further processing to different types of images, and to decide on such processing automatically as well. This paper touches on those issues in that we discuss the processing of landmark images and of images coming from webcams. The first part deals with the automated collection of images of landmarks, which are then also automatically annotated and enriched with Wikipedia information. The target application is that users photograph landmarks with their mobile phones or PDAs, and automatically get information about them.
