Image Search and Retrieval Research: Recognizing Visual Patterns

Those of you who track what’s going on in search and IR research might be interested in this news release that discusses some new image retrievel research from Utrecht University in The Netherlands.

Dutch researcher Mirela Tanase has developed a new technique for finding images using search engines. Her technique is based on how the human eye recognises objects. It can increase the success rate of certain search operations for objects from 10 to 70 percent.

On her web site, Tanase has a link to a dated (2000) but nevertheless interesting paper titled, “Content-based image retrieval systems: A survey,” that she co-authored.
