Exploration Portal (Image exploration demo)

Exploration portal is a demonstration application for Multimedia exploration framework and a logical successor of SIR. The portal uses all framework features and implements example use cases for all important framework parts.

The portal can be used for exploration of static data sets, Bing search results and personal Facebook albums. It provides a variety of configuration options to affect feature extraction, similarity model, index creation and many other parameters.

The result is visualized using a similarity-based layout and supports different query options, such as zoom-in, zoom-out, multi-query or panning in 4 different directions.

Find the image (Online tool for comparisons of different multimedia exploration approaches)

Find the image is an artificial search scenario designed for testing and comparison of our exploration techniques. The task is to use a web-based exploration application to find as much images from a predetermined class as possible. This predetermined class should correspond to a search intention that cannot be easily transformed to a text-based query or to a query-by-example.
