MultiMedia DataBase Group
Our scientific activity is focused on finding, within very large data bases,
those objects and data that are better suited to fulfill the information needs
of non-expert users.
This leads us to consider both effectiveness (i.e. "quality" of results) and
efficiency aspects of the search process, in order to scale it to large data
Moreover, we also take into account the need to provide the user with simple
but powerful tools, able to smooth the processes of query creation/customization
and of result interpretation.
Until now, we applied our techniques to a plethora of different media types
(images, videos, text documents, time series, etc.), to genetic data and to patterns
obtained through Data Mining processes (associative rules, clusters, etc.).
