In this paper we investigate how to scale a content based image retrieval approach beyond the RAM limits of a single computer and to make use of its hard drive to store the feature database. The feature vectors describing the images in the database are binned in multiple independent ways. Each bin contains images similar to a representative prototype. Each binning is considered through two stages of processing. First, the prototype closest to the query is found. Second, the bin corresponding to… CONTINUE READING
