Fundamentals of image data mining: analysis, features, classification and retrieval
Data mining is “the science of extracting useful knowledge from huge data repositories” [1]. Extending this definition, it can be concluded that image data mining is the science of extracting valuable knowledge from large volumes of images. The process of mining image data is... more
