Research: Content-based Retrieval


The central theme of this research is on systems for guiding decisions. We developed several Riemannian manifold based systems for tracking and classification of human detection. The Image Guided Decision Support system is used for diagnostic pathology, which integrates shape, area, and texture features extracted after color image segmentation. (See also topic: Robust analysis of visual data.) Efficient computation of similarity measures, comparative study of texture representations, some image compression related applications are also described.
