    We describe an approach to generalize the concept of text-based search to nontextual information. In particular, we elaborate on the possibilities of retrieving objects or scenes in a movie with the ease, speed, and accuracy with which Google retrieves web pages containing particular words, by specifying the query as an image of the object or scene. In our approach, each frame of the video is repr... View full abstract»

    We conduct a broad survey of query-adaptive search strategies in a variety of application domains, where the internal retrieval mechanisms used for search are adapted in response to the anticipated needs for each individual query experienced by the system. While these query-adaptive approaches can range from meta-search over text collections to multimodal search over video databases, we propose th... View full abstract»

    The popularity of mobile devices, such as PDAs and SmartPhones, has grown rapidly over the last couple of years. Though most users still perform searches using desktop computers, it is expected that more and more people will also search the Web while they are on the move. In addition to text-based keyword queries, mobile devices can support richer and hybrid queries such as images, audio, video, a... View full abstract»

    An approach using many intermediate semantic concepts is proposed with the potential to bridge the semantic gap between what a color, shape, and texture-based ldquolow-levelrdquo image analysis can extract from video and what users really want to find, most likely using text descriptions of their information needs. Semantic concepts such as cars, planes, roads, people, animals, and different types... View full abstract»

    Events are real-world occurrences that unfold over space and time. Event mining from multimedia streams improves the access and reuse of large media collections, and it has been an active area of research with notable progress. This paper contains a survey on the problems and solutions in event mining, approached from three aspects: event description, event-modeling components, and current event m... View full abstract»
