Title (EN) SIMILARITY DETECTION AND CLUSTERING OF IMAGES
(FR) DETECTION DE SIMILARITE ET GROUPAGE D'IMAGES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A method for determining if a set of images in a large collection of images are near-duplicates is described. The method includes processing the set of images, generating an image signature for each image in the set of images, and comparing the generated image signatures. The method can be used in clustering and ranking of images.
(FR)L'invention concerne un procédé destiné à déterminer si un ensemble d'images dans une collection importante d'images est presque constitué de reproductions. Le procédé comprend le traitement de l'ensemble d'images, la génération d'une signature d'image pour chaque image dans l'ensemble d'images, et la comparaison des signatures d'images générées. Le procédé peut être utilisé dans le groupage et le classement d'images.
