Abstract: As the amount of multimedia data keeps growing rapidly, real-time access and retrieval from large-scale multimedia data has been the bottleneck for many real-world applications. Many research results have shown the promising performance of hashing techniques that map high-dimensional feature vectors into short binary codes for quick matching. In this talk, we will discuss the recent development on hashing to effectively support tasks such as retrieval and classification.
