A tremendous amount of work has been conducted in content-based image retrieval (CBIR) on designing effective index structure to accelerate the retrieval process. Most of them improve the retrieval efficiency via complex index structures, and few take into account the parallel implementation of them on underlying hardware, making the existing index structures suffer from low-degree of parallelism. In this paper, a novel graphics processing unit (GPU) adaptive index structure, termed as plane…

Parallelization and optimization of a CBVIR system on multi-core architectures

This paper proposes a parallelization implementation of a CBVIR system facing to server application and uses some serial and parallel optimization techniques to improve its performance on an 8-core and on a 16-core systems and shows that optimized implementation can achieve very fast retrieval on the two multi-core system.

Content-Based Image Retrieval at the End of the Early Years

The working conditions of content-based retrieval: patterns of use, types of pictures, the role of semantics, and the sensory gap are discussed, as well as aspects of system engineering: databases, system architecture, and evaluation.

Fast k nearest neighbor search using GPU

A CUDA implementation of the ldquobrute forcerdquo kNN search and it is shown a speed increase on synthetic and real data by up to one or two orders of magnitude depending on the data, with a quasi-linear behavior with respect to the data size in a given, practical range.

Hamming Embedding and Weak Geometric Consistency for Large Scale Image Search

Estimation of the full geometric transformation of bag-of-features in the framework of approximate nearest neighbor search is complementary to the weak geometric consistency constraints and allows to further improve the accuracy.

Content-based image retrieval with relevance feedback in MARS

Experimental results show that the image retrieval precision increases considerably by using the proposed integration approach, and the relevance feedback technique from the IR domain is used in content-based image retrieval to demonstrate the effectiveness of this conversion.

Content-based image retrieval in medical applications.

The proposed architecture is suitable for content-based image retrieval in medical applications and improves current picture archiving and communication systems that still rely on alphanumerical descriptions, which are insufficient for image retrieval of high recall and precision.

Shared-memory parallelization for content-based image retrieval

It is shown how modern shared-memory parallelization techniques can gain nearly linear speedup in content-based image retrieval and these ideas were applied to a clustering algorithm where substantial performance improvements could be observed.
