Information Theoretic Similarity Measures for Content Based Image Retrieval.
Zachary, John; Iyengar, S. S.
Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology, v52 n10 p856-67 Aug 2001
Content-based image retrieval is based on the idea of extracting visual features from images and using them to index images in a database. Proposes similarity measures and an indexing algorithm based on information theory that permits an image to be represented as a single number. When used in conjunction with vectors, this method displays improved efficiency when querying large databases. (Author/AEF)
