Project Description

Descriptor - A piece of stored information that is used to identify
an item in an information storage and retrieval system.


The Goal of this project is to implement a scene descriptor for digitized images. With this descriptor we want to be able to search in a big database for similar images. This descriptor uses 2 methods to find similar images, one is an Lab* descriptor and the other is a gist descriptor, later as defined by Torralba and Oliva.

time in future queries
Descriptors can save image features that are essential for
search and comparison
