Efficient and Effective Querying by Image Content
 Journal of Intelligent Information Systems
, 1994
"... In the QBIC (Query By Image Content) project we are studying methods to query large online image databases using the images' content as the basis of the queries. Examples of the content we use include color, texture, and shape of image objects and regions. Potential applications include med ..."

Surface kNN Query Processing
"... A kNN query finds the k nearestneighbors of a given point from a point database. When it is sufficient to measure object distance using the Euclidian distance, the key to efficient kNN query processing is to fetch and check the distances of a minimum number of points from the database. For many a ..."

applications, such as vehicle movement along road networks or rover and animal movement along terrain surfaces, the distance is only meaningful when it is along a valid movement path. For this type of kNN queries, the focus of efficient query processing is to minimize the cost of computing distances using
Tinydb: An acquisitional query processing system for sensor networks
 ACM Trans. Database Syst
, 2005
"... We discuss the design of an acquisitional query processor for data collection in sensor networks. Acquisitional issues are those that pertain to where, when, and how often data is physically acquired (sampled) and delivered to query processing operators. By focusing on the locations and costs of acq ..."

Selective sampling using the Query by Committee algorithm
 Machine Learning
, 1997
"... We analyze the "query by committee" algorithm, a method for filtering informative queries from a random stream of inputs. We show that if the twomember committee algorithm achieves information gain with positive lower bound, then the prediction error decreases exponentially with the numbe ..."

TopicSensitive PageRank
, 2002
"... In the original PageRank algorithm for improving the ranking of searchquery results, a single PageRank vector is computed, using the link structure of the Web, to capture the relative "importance" of Web pages, independent of any particular search query. To yield more accurate search resu ..."

Efficient similarity search in sequence databases
, 1994
"... We propose an indexing method for time sequences for processing similarity queries. We use the Discrete Fourier Transform (DFT) to map time sequences to the frequency domain, the crucial observation being that, for most sequences of practical interest, only the first few frequencies are strong. Anot ..."

Mtree: An Efficient Access Method for Similarity Search in Metric Spaces
, 1997
"... A new access meth d, called Mtree, is proposed to organize and search large data sets from a generic "metric space", i.e. whE4 object proximity is only defined by a distance function satisfyingth positivity, symmetry, and triangle inequality postulates. We detail algorith[ for insertion o ..."

Primitives for the manipulation of general subdivisions and the computations of Voronoi diagrams
 ACM Tmns. Graph
, 1985
"... The following problem is discussed: Given n points in the plane (the sites) and an arbitrary query point 4, find the site that is closest to q. This problem can be solved by constructing the Voronoi diagram of the given sites and then locating the query point in one of its regions. Two algorithms ar ..."

Object exchange across heterogeneous information sources
 INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON DATA ENGINEERING

"... We address the problem of providing integrated access to diverse and dynamic information sources. We explain how this problem differs from the traditional database integration problem and we focus on one aspect of the information integration problem, namely information exchange. We define an object ..."
