A CNR-coordinated project
A Multimedia Database Management System should support the storage of large amounts of data and the synchronized presentation of video, audio, etc., and also be able to deal with the effective and efficient retrieval of requested information based on the objects' content.
The purpose of the MIDA project is to provide theoretical and practical tools for Multimedia Databases modeling and querying.
Information retrieval from a Multimedia (MM) Database is a difficult task for which no satisfactory solution has been presented yet. The substantial difficulty in accessing MM objects by using their content is due to two main factors, different but tightly related:
The general purpose of this project is to provide original contributions in order to solve above problems. Within MIDA, this objective will be pursued by dividing it in three interacting levels:
