Title (EN) IMAGE DESCRIPTION SYSTEM AND METHOD
(FR) SYSTEME ET PROCEDE DE DESCRIPTION D'IMAGES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Systems and methods for describing image content establish image description records which include an object set (24), an object hierarchy (26) and entity relation graphs (28). For image content, image objects can include global objects (O0 8) and local objects (O1 2 and O2 6). The image objects are further defined by a number of features of different classes (36, 38 and 40), which in turn are further defined by a number of feature descriptors. The relationships between and among the objects in the object set are defined by the object hierarchy (26) and entity relation graphs (28). The image description records provide a standard vehicle for describing the content and context of image information for subsequent access and processing by computer applications such as search engines, filters, and archive systems.
(FR)Selon cette invention, des systèmes et des procédés de description du contenu d'une image établissent des rapports de description d'images qui comprennent un ensemble d'objets (24), une hiérarchie d'objets (26) et des graphes entité-relation (28). En ce qui concerne le contenu d'une image, les objets image peuvent comprendre des objets globaux (O08) et des objets locaux (O1 2 et O 2 6). Les objets image sont en outre définis par un certain nombre de paramètres de classes différentes (36, 38 et 40), lesdits paramètres étant définis à leur tour par un certain nombre de descripteurs de paramètres. Les relations entre les objets faisant partie d'un ensemble d'objets sont définies par la hiérarchie (26) des objets et les graphes entité-relation (28). Les rapports de description d'images constituent un véhicule standard servant à la description du contenu et du contexte des informations image à des fins d'accès et de traitement ultérieur par des applications informatiques telles que les moteurs de recherche, les filtres et les systèmes d'archivage.
