Title
(EN) MODULAR IMAGE QUERY SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTEME MODULAIRE DE CONSULTATION D'IMAGES
Abstract
(EN) An image query and storage apparatus (100) and method including a plurality of dynamically linkable feature modules is disclosed. Each of the plurality of feature modules (125) extract a different set of feature information from an input image. The method and apparatus further includes a database (160) coupled to the plurality of feature modules. The database includes storage for the different set of feature information for each of the plurality of feature modules. The method and apparatus support a query by image content of the database of images using the dynamically linked plurality of feature modules. The method and apparatus further includes a plurality of dynamically linkable scoring modules (135) for processing feature specific scoring information generated by the feature modules.
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil (100) et un procédé de consultation et de stockage d'images comprenant une pluralité de modules de traits pouvant être reliés dynamiquement. Chacun de la pluralité des modules (125) de traits extrait un ensemble différent d'informations de traits dans une image entrée. Le procédé et l'appareil comprennent également une base de données (160) couplée à la pluralité de modules de traits. La base de données comprend une mémoire pour les différents ensembles d'informations de traits pour chacun de la pluralité de modules de traits. Le procédé et l'appareil prennent en charge une consultation par contenu d'image de la base de données d'images à l'aide de la pluralité de modules de traits liés dynamiquement. Le procédé et l'appareil comprennent également une pluralité de modules (135) de comptage reliables dynamiquement destinés à traiter des informations de comptage spécifiques aux traits générées par les modules de traits.
