MPEG-7 Feature Visualization for CBIR Systems

This is my paper which was published in the proceedings of the ICCTA Conference 2010.


Content-Based Image Retrieval techniques are developed in an attempt to make fast and efficient explorationof visual content possible. In addition, standard MPEG-7 visual features should offer interoperability across different multimedia database systems. This paper presents an attempt to bridge the gap between the target semantic concepts of multimedia data and the available low-level visual descriptors by providing anintermediate feedback to the user of a CBIR system where the features selected in his query are visualized according to his input image. Two MPEG-7 visual features, a color feature (Color Layout Descriptor – CLD) and a texture feature (Edge Histogram Descriptor -EHD), were chosen for this purpose.

Thesis: MPEG-7 Feature Visualization for CBIR Systems

This is my Bachelor Thesis which I completed at Stuttgart University July 2008.And this was my final presentation.

RSVP Tutorial

Computer Networks Tutorial

This is a “complete” Intro to Computer Networks Tutorial which I had compiled during university years, I think it was in 2006/7.  It’s just an aid for students with some illustrations.

Topics included in the tutorial:

Chapter 1: Network Structure
Chapter 2: Application Layer
Chapter 3: Internet Protocols
Chapter 4: Transport Layer (Part 1)
Chapter 5: Transport Layer (Part 2)
Chapter 6: Network Layer
Chapter 7: Link Layer
Chapter 8: IP, ICMP
Chapter 9: Broadcast & Multicast Routing

Recursion Slides

Slides for explaining the concept of recursion (unfortunately this pdf version is not clear, i will search for the original ppt, it was nice)
