There is now so much data on the Web that managing it with conventional tools is becoming almost impossible. To manage this data, provide interoperability and warehousing between multiple data sources and systems, and extract information from the databases and warehouses, various tools are being developed. In fact, developments in multimedia database management have exploded during the past decade. To date, however, there has been little information available on providing a complete set of services for multimedia databases, including their management, mining, and integration on the Web for electronic enterprises.
Managing and Mining Multimedia Databases fills that gap. Focusing on managing and mining multimedia databases for electronic commerce and business, it explores database management system techniques for text, image, audio, and video databases. It addresses the issues and challenges of mining multimedia databases to extract information, and discusses the directions and challenges related to integrating multimedia databases for the Web, particularly for e-business.
This book provides a comprehensive overview of multimedia data management and mining technologies, from the underlying concepts, architectures, and data models for multimedia database systems to the technologies that support multimedia data management on the Web, privacy issues, and emerging standards, prototypes, and products. Designed for technical managers, executives, and technologists, it offers your only opportunity to learn about both multimedia data management and multimedia data mining within a single book.
