Funded by the French National Research Agency, in partnership with INRIA and the University of Caen, the R2I project aims at conceiving methods for interactive search of images in very large datasets (typically one billion images).
R2I is oriented towards user needs, by designing and combining several tools making the search of images by content easier.
These tools are able to:
extract semantics from images and transform raw data into a semantically rich representation,
cluster similar images and propose visual summaries of search results,
allow user interaction via semantic concepts related to images,
allow the indexation of very large volumes of images.
