Research Institution
In this proposal, we will develop a uniform framework, called a multimedia mediator, for integrating and querying multimedia data as well as heterogenous data located on a distributed network. The multimedia mediator will use distributed computing technology to scale up to real-world applications. We will develop graphical query languages and query engines whereby an end-user can query a system integrated via multimedia mediators. Multimedia mediators, augmented with such user interfaces, provide a generic software interface that can be used to access large multimedia databases.
