Content-based image retrieval (CBIR), also known as query by image content (QBIC) and content-based visual information retrieval (CBVIR) is the application of computer vision to the image picture of dogs retrieval problem, that is, the problem of searching for digital images in pictures of dog large databases. "Content-based" means that the search makes use of picures of dogs the contents of the images themselves, rather than relying on human-inputted metadata such as captions or keywords. pitures of dogs A content-based image retrieval system (CBIRS) is a piece of software that implements picturs of dogs CBIR.

The term CBIR seems to have picturesof dogs originated in 1992, when it was used by T. Kato to describe picyures of dogs experiments into automatic retrieval of images from a database, based on the colours pictures pf dogs and shapes present. Since then, the term has been used to describe the process of retrieving desired images from a pictres of dogs large collection on the basis of pictures ofdogs syntactical image features. The techniques, tools and algorithms that are used originate from fields such as statistics, pictures of bogs pattern recognition, signal processing, and computer vision.

There is growing interest in CBIR because of the pictures og dogs limitations inherent in metadata-based systems. Textual information about images can be easily searched using pictures of dgs existing technology, picttures of dogs but requires humans to personally describe every image in the database.This is impractical for very pictires of dogs large databases, or for images that are generated automatically, e.g. from pictures of dogs surveillance cameras. It is also possible to miss images that use different synonyms in their descriptions. Systems based on categorizing images in funny pictures of dogs semantic classes like "cat" as a subclass of "animal" avoid pictures of cats and dogs this problem but still face the same scaling issues.

The ideal CBIR funny pictures of dogs and cats system from a user perspective would involve what is referred to as semantic retrieval, pictures of dogs on rockets where the user makes a request like "find pictures of dogs" pictures of dogs and cats or even "find pictures of Abraham Lincoln". This type of open-ended task is very difficult for computers to perform - pictures of pictures of dogs or puppys chihuahuas and Great Danes pictures of shih tzu dogs look very different, and Lincoln may not always be facing the camera or in the pictures of demon on snow dogs same pose. Current CBIR systems therefore generally make use of lower-level features like texture, color, and pictures of dogs and puppies shape, although some systems take advantage of very cartoon pictures of dalmatian dogs common higher-level features like faces (see facial recognition system). Not every CBIR system is generic. Some systems are designed for a specific pictures of boxer dogs domain, e.g. shape matching can be used for finding parts inside a pictures of flea tick and mite tes on dogs CAD-CAM database.

Different implementations pictures of funny dogs of CBIR make use of different types of user queries.

  • With query by example, the user searches with a query image pictures of types of small dogs (supplied by the user or chosen pictures of worms in dogs from a random set), and the software finds images similar to it based on various low-level criteria.
  • With query by sketch, the user draws a pictures of dogs in fields rough approximation of the image they pictures of dogs with fleas are looking for, for example with blobs of color, and the software locates images whose layout matches the pictures of mixed breed dogs sketch.
  • Other methods include specifying the proportions of colors desired (e.g. "80% red, 20% blue") pictures of pit bull dogs and searching for images that contain pictures of skin rashes in dogs an object given in a query image (as at [1]).

CBIR systems a webstie that show pictures of dogs can also make use of relevance feedback, where the user progressively refines digital pictures of dogs the search results by marking images in the results as "relevant", "not relevant", or "neutral" to the search query, then free pictures of dogs repeating the search with the new information.

Some software producers are aggressively trying to push CBIR based applications pictures of hunting dogs into the filtering and law enforcement pictures of puppies and dogs markets for the purpose of identifying and censoring images with skin-tones free pictures of black labrador dogs and shapes that could indicate the presence of nudity, with controversial results.
