Visualization and categorization of large image collections

Due to the widespread use of digital cameras, mobile phones, surveillance cameras, etc., the amount of multimedia data has increased rapidly and will further increase in the future. This vast amount of data is a valuable source of information, but only if categorized properly. Since multimedia categorization is labor intensive and hard to automate, the purpose of this research project is to investigate the optimal use of computers for as many automatic categorization decisions as possible and to find out how human resources can contribute to these algorithms in an effective way.
