The complexity of search in current business intelligence systems, academic research, or even the home audiovisual databases grows up rapidly. Users require searching by the content of their data. For example, the user sees a cathedral while watching a movie and by taking a snapshot, his or her private collection of holiday photos can be searched for images(More)
As the volume of non-textual data, such images and other multimedia data, available on Internet is increasing. The issue of identifying data items based on query containment rather than query equality is becoming more and more important. In this paper, we propose a solution to this problem. We assume local descriptors are extracted from data items, so the(More)
Sub-image content-based similarity search forms an important operation in current image archives since it provides users with images that contain a query image as their part. Such a search can conveniently be implemented using the bag-of-features model. Its integral part is a construction of visual vocabulary. Most existing algorithms to create a visual(More)
Hybrid mesoporous titania/silica electron-generating and transporting layers were prepared using wet-coating with a dispersion consisting of prefabricated titania nanoparticles and a methyl-silica binder. Titania/methyl-silica wet layers were deposited by inkjet printing and further mineralized by low-temperature atmospheric-pressure air plasma using(More)
Active dressings that based on fabric materials are an area of interest for the treatment of wounds. Poly(l-lactide) nanoparticles containing the antimicrobial agent octenidine can be controllably lysed by toxins released by pathogenic bacteria thus releasing antimicrobial material in response to the presence of the bacterial toxins and so counteracting the(More)
The availability of various photo archives and photo sharing systems made similarity searching much more important because the photos are not usually conveniently tagged. So the photos (images) need to be searched by their content. Moreover, it is important not only to compare images with a query holistically but also to locate images that contain the query(More)
