Searching by Similarity and Classifying Images on a Very Large Scale
—In the demonstration we will show a system for searching by similarity and automatically classifying images in a very large dataset. The demonstrated techniques are based on the use of the MI-File (Metric Inverted File) as the access method for executing similarity search efficiently. The MI-File is an access methods based on inverted files that relies on a space transformation that use the notion of perspective to decide about the similarity between two objects. More specifically, if two objects are close one to each other, also the view of the space from their position is similar. Leveraging on this space transformation, it is possible to use inverted file to execute approximate similarity search. In order to test the scalability of this access method, we inserted 106 millions images from the CoPhIR dataset and we created an on-line search engine that allows everybody to search in this dataset. In addition we also used this access methods to perform automatic classification o...
