Multimedia databases

The research 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 to consider both effectiveness and efficiency aspects of the search process, in order to scale it to large data volumes, by also taking 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. Such techniques have been applied 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.).
