This paper presents the second version of the IMOTION system, a sketch-based video retrieval engine supporting multiple query paradigms. Ever since, IMOTION has supported the search for video sequences on the basis of still images, user-provided sketches, or the specification of motion via flow fields. For the second version, the functionality and the usability of the system have been improved. It now supports multiple input images (such as sketches or still frames) per query, as well as the specification of objects to be present within the target sequence. The results are either grouped by video or by sequence and the support for selective and collaborative retrieval has been improved. Special features have been added to encapsulate semantic similarity.

IMOTION — A Content-based video retrieval engine
Rossetto, Luca; Giangreco, Ivan; Schuldt, Heiko; Dupont, Stephane; Seddati, Omar; Sezgin, Metin; Sahillioğlu, Yusuf (2015-01-05)
This paper introduces the IMOTION system, a sketch-based video retrieval engine supporting multiple query paradigms. For vector space retrieval, the IMOTION system exploits a large variety of low-level image and video features, as well as high-level spatial and temporal features that can all be jointly used in any combination. In addition, it supports dedicated motion features to allow for the specification of motion within a video sequence. For query specification, the IMOTION system supports query-by-sket...
Using object-oriented materialized views to answer selection-based complex queries
Alhajj, R; Polat, Faruk (1999-09-01)
Presented in this paper is a model that utilizes existing materialized views to handle a wide range of complex selection-based queries, including linear recursive queries. Such queries are complex because it is almost impossible for naive users to predict the formulation of their predicate expressions. Object variables bound to objects in the result of a query are allowed to appear in the predicate of that query. Also, the predicate definition is extended to make it possible to have in the output only a sub...
Improving the performance of Hadoop/Hive by sharing scan and computation tasks
Özal, Serkan; Toroslu, İsmail Hakkı; Doğaç, Asuman; Department of Computer Engineering (2013)
MapReduce is a popular model of executing time-consuming analytical queries as a batch of tasks on large scale data. During simultaneous execution of multiple queries, many oppor- tunities can arise for sharing scan and/or computation tasks. Executing common tasks only once can reduce the total execution time of all queries remarkably. Therefore, we propose to use Multiple Query Optimization (MQO) techniques to improve the overall performance of Hadoop Hive, an open source SQL-based distributed warehouse sy...
Dynamic Programming with Ant Colony Optimization Metaheuristic for Optimization of Distributed Database Queries
Dokeroglu, Tansel; Coşar, Ahmet (2011-09-28)
In this paper, we introduce and evaluate a new query optimization algorithm based on Dynamic Programming (DP) and Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) metaheuristic for distributed database queries. DP algorithm is widely used for relational query optimization, however its memory, and time requirements are very large for the query optimization problem in a distributed database environment which is an NP-hard combinatorial problem. Our aim is to combine the power of DP with heuristic approaches so that we can have ...
Integer Linear Programming Solution for the Multiple Query Optimization Problem
Dokeroglu, Tansel; Bayir, Murat Ali; Coşar, Ahmet (2014-10-28)
Multiple Query Optimization (MQO) is a technique for processing a batch of queries in such a way that shared tasks in these queries are executed only once, resulting in significant savings in the total evaluation. The first phase of MQO requires producing alternative query execution plans so that the shared tasks between queries are identified and maximized. The second phase of MQO is an optimization problem where the goal is selecting exactly one of the alternative plans for each query to minimize the tota...
