Abstract

The large growing amount of digital data, and the development of the Internet highlight the need to develop sophisticated access methods that provide more than just simple text-based queries. Many programs have been developed with complex mathematical algorithms to allow the transformation of image or audio data in a way that enhances searching accuracy. However it becomes difficult when dealing with large sets of multimedia data. This talk will discuss a novel data mining technique which named Intelligent Dynamic Swarm (IDS) for the Content Based Video Retrieval System (CBVRS) and Content Based Audio Retrieval System (CBARS).
