Comparing the performance of CBIR (Content-Based Image Retrieval) algorithms is difficult. Private data sets are used, so it is controversial to compare CBIR algorithms developed by different researchers. Also, the performance of CBIR algorithms is usually measured on an isolated, well-tuned PC or workstation. In a realworld environment, however, the CBIR(More)
Multiprocessors, whether mainframes or open systems, do not deliver linear-scaling capacity. The real capacity curve is sublinear due to some amount of processing capacity being usurped by the system in order to orchestrate the interaction between physical processors and computational resources. This computational overhead is sometimes referred to as the MP(More)
