Multimedia Database : 

Multimedia Database Chapter 9, Principles of Multimedia Database Systems. V.S. Subrahmanian, 1998

What is a Multimedia DBMS? : 

MM Database 2 What is a Multimedia DBMS? A multimedia database management system (MM-DBMS) is a framework that manages different types of data potentially represented in a wide diversity of formats on a wide array of media sources. Like the traditional DBMS, MM-DBMS should address requirements: Integration Data items do not need to be duplicated for different programs Data independence Separate the database and the management from the application programs Concurrency control allows concurrent transactions

Requirements of Multimedia DBMS : 

MM Database 3 Requirements of Multimedia DBMS Persistence Data objects can be saved and re-used by different transactions and program invocations Privacy Access and authorization control Integrity control Ensures database consistency between transactions Recovery Failures of transactions should not affect the persistent data storage Query support Allows easy querying of multimedia data

Requirements of Multimedia DBMS (cont.) : 

MM Database 4 Requirements of Multimedia DBMS (cont.) In addition, an MM-DBMS should: have the ability to uniformly query data (media data, textual data) represented in different formats. have the ability to simultaneously query different media sources and conduct classical database operations across them.  query support have the ability to retrieve media objects from a local storage device in a smooth jitter-free (i.e. continuous) manner.  storage support have the ability to take the answer generated by a query and develop a presentation of that answer in terms of audio-visual media. have the ability to deliver this presentation in a way that satisfies various Quality of Service requirements.  presentation and delivery support

Major Issues: Query Support : 

MM Database 5 Major Issues: Query Support Allow easy query of multimedia data What is query by content? Can query be specified as a combination of media (examples) and text description? How to handle different MM objects? What query language should be used? Allow efficient query of multimedia data What algorithms can be used to efficiently retrieve media data on the basis of similarity? How should we index the content of different MM objects? How to provide traditional DBMS supports?

Major Issues: Storage Support : 

MM Database 6 Major Issues: Storage Support How do the following (standard) storage devices work? disk systems CD-ROM systems tape systems and tape libraries How is data laid out on such devices? How do we design disk/CD-ROM/tape servers so as to optimally satisfy different clients concurrently when these clients execute the following operations playback rewind fast forward pause

Major Issues: Presentation & Delivery Support : 

MM Database 7 Major Issues: Presentation & Delivery Support How do we specify the content of multimedia presentations? How do we specify the form (temporal/spatial layout) of this content? How do we create a presentation schedule that satisfies these temporal/spatial presentation requirements? How can we deliver a multimedia presentation to users when there is a need to interact with other remote servers to assemble the presentation (or parts of it) a bound on the buffer, bandwidth, load, and other resources available on the system a mismatch between the host server's capabilities and the customers machine capabilities? How can such presentations optimize Quality of Service (QoS)?

A Sample Multimedia Scenario : 

MM Database 8 A Sample Multimedia Scenario Consider a police investigation of a large-scale drug operation. This investigation may generate the following types of data Video data captured by surveillance cameras that record the activities taking place at various locations. Audio data captured by legally authorized telephone wiretaps. Image data consisting of still photographs taken by investigators. Document data seized by the police when raiding one or more places. Structured relational data containing background information, back records, etc., of the suspects involved. Geographic information system data remaining geographic data relevant to the drug investigation being conducted.

Possible Queries : 

MM Database 9 Possible Queries Image Query (by example): Police officer Rocky has a photograph in front of him. He wants to find the identity of the person in the picture. Query: “Retrieve all images from the image library in which the person appearing in the (currently displayed) photograph appears” Image Query (by keywords): Police officer Rocky wants to examine pictures of “Big Spender”. Query: "Retrieve all images from the image library in which “Big Spender” appears."

Possible Queries (cont.) : 

MM Database 10 Possible Queries (cont.) Video Query: Police officer Rocky is examining a surveillance video of a particular person being fatally assaulted by an assailant. However, the assailant's face is occluded and image processing algorithms return very poor matches. Rocky thinks the assault was by someone known to the victim. Query: “Find all video segments in which the victim of the assault appears.” By examining the answer of the above query, Rocky hopes to find other people who have previously interacted with the victim. Heterogeneous Multimedia Query: Find all individuals who have been photographed with “Big Spender” and who have been convicted of attempted murder in South China and who have recently had electronic fund transfers made into their bank accounts from ABC Corp.

MM Database Architectures : 

MM Database 11 MM Database Architectures Based on Principle of Autonomy Each media type is organized in a media-specific manner suitable for that media type Need to compute joins across different data structures Relatively fast query processing due to specialized structures The only choice for legacy data banks

MM Database Architectures (cont.) : 

MM Database 12 MM Database Architectures (cont.) Based on Principle of Uniformity A single abstract structure to index all media types Abstract out the common part of different media types (difficult!) - metadata One structure - easy implementation Annotations for different media types

MM Database Architectures (cont.) : 

MM Database 13 MM Database Architectures (cont.) Based on Principle of Hybrid Organization A hybrid of the first two. Certain media types use their own indexes, while others use the "unified" index An attempt to capture the advantages of the first two Joins across multiple data sources using their native indexes

Organizing Multimedia Data Based on thePrinciple of Uniformity : 

MM Database 14 Organizing Multimedia Data Based on thePrinciple of Uniformity Consider the following statements about media data and they may be made by a human or may be produced by the output of an image/video/text content retrieval engine. The image photol.gif shows Jane Shady, “Big Spender” and an unidentified third person, in Sheung Shui. The picture was taken on January 5, 1997. The video-clip videol.mpg shows Jane Shady giving “Big Spender” a briefcase (in frames 50-100). The video was obtained from surveillance set up at Big Spender’s house in Kowloon Tong, in October, 1996. The document bigspender.txt contains background information on Big Spender, a police’s file.

Metadata and Media Abstraction : 

MM Database 15 Metadata and Media Abstraction All these statements are Meta-data statements. Associate, with each media object oi, some meta-data, md(oi) If our archive contains objects o1,..., on, then index the meta data md(o1),..., md(on) in a way that provides efficient ways of implementing the expected accesses that users will make. We expect to take use of a single data structure to represent metadata This can be achieved via media abstractions Media abstractions are mathematical structure representing such media content. Let’s consider a simple multimedia database system (SMDS) hereafter!

Querying SMDSs (Uniform Representation) : 

MM Database 16 Querying SMDSs (Uniform Representation) Querying SMDS based on top of SQL. Basic functions include: FindType(Obj): This function takes a media object Obj as input, and returns the output type of the object. For example, FindType(iml.gif) = gif. FindType(moviel.mpg) = mpg. FindObjWithFeature(f): This function takes a feature f as input and returns as output, the set of all media objects that contain that feature. For example, FindObjWithFeature(john)= {iml.gif,im2.gif,im3.gif,videol.mpg:[1,5]}. FindObjWithFeature(mary)= {videol.mpg:[1,5],videol.mpg:[15,50]}.

Querying SMDSs (Uniform Representation) (cont.) : 

MM Database 17 Querying SMDSs (Uniform Representation) (cont.) FindObjWithFeatureandAttr(f,a,v): This function takes as input, a feature f, an attribute name a associated with that feature, and a value v. It returns as output, all objects obj that contain the feature and such the value of the attribute a in object obj is v. E.g. FindObjWithFeatureandAttr(Big Spender,suit,blue): This query asks to find all media objects in which Big Spender appears in a blue suit. FindFeaturesinObj(Obj): This query asks to find all features that occur within a given media object. It returns as output, the set of all such features. For example, FindFeaturesinObj (iml.gif): This asks for all features within the image file iml.gif. It may return as output, the objects John, and Lisa. FindFeaturesinObj(videol.mpg:[1,15]): This asks for all features within the first 15 frames of the video file videol.mpg. The answer may include objects such as Mary and John.

Querying SMDSs (Uniform Representation) (cont.) : 

MM Database 18 Querying SMDSs (Uniform Representation) (cont.) FindFeaturesandAttrinObj(Obj): This query is exactly like the previous query except that it returns as output, a relation having the scheme (Feature,Attribute,Value) where the triple (f,a,v) occurs in the output relation iff feature f occurs in the query FindFeaturesinObj(Obj) and feature f's attribute a is defined and has value v. For example, FindFeaturesandAttrinObj(iml.gif) may return as answer, the table

Querying SMDS by SMDS-SQL : 

MM Database 19 Querying SMDS by SMDS-SQL All ordinary SQL statements are SMDS-SQL statements. In addition: The SELECT statement may contain media-entities. A media entity is defined as follows: If m is a continuous media object, and i, j are integers, then m:[i, j] is a media-entity denoting the set of all frames of media object m that lie between (and inclusive of) segments i, j. If m is not a continuous media object, them m is a media entity. If m is a media entity, and a is an attribute of m, then m.a is a media-entity. The FROM statement may contain entries of the form <media> <source> <M> which says that only media-objects associate with the named media type and named data source are to be considered when processing the query, and that M is a variable ranging over such media objects.

Querying SMDS by SMDS-SQL (cont) : 

MM Database 20 Querying SMDS by SMDS-SQL (cont) The WHERE statement allows (in addition to standard SQL constructs), expressions of the form term IN func_ca11 where term is either a variable (in which case it ranges over the output type of func_call) or an object having the same output type as func_call and func_call is any of the five function calls stated above

Sample SMDS-SQL Statements : 

MM Database 21 Sample SMDS-SQL Statements Find all image/video objects containing both Jane Shady and Big Spender. This can be expressed as the SMDS-SQL query: SELECT M FROM smds source1 M WHERE (FindType(M)=Video OR FindType(M)=Image) AND M IN FindObjWithFeature(Big Spender) AND M IN FindObjWithFeature(Jane Shady).

Sample SMDS-SQL Statements (cont.) : 

MM Database 22 Sample SMDS-SQL Statements (cont.) Find all image/video objects containing Big Spender wearing a purple suit. This can be expressed as the SMDS-SQL query: SELECT M FROM smds sourcel M WHERE (FindType(M)=Video OR FindType(M)=Image) AND M IN FindObjWithFeatureandAttr(Big Spender, suit, purple)

Sample SMDS-SQL Statements (cont.) : 

MM Database 23 Sample SMDS-SQL Statements (cont.) Find all images containing Jane Shady and a person who appears in a video with Big Spender. Unlike the preceding queries this query involves computing a "join" like operations across different data domains. In order to do this, we use existential variables such as the variable "Person" in the query below, which is used to refer to the existence of an unknown person whose identity is to be determined. SELECT M,Person FROM smds sourcel M,M1 WHERE (FindType(M)=Image) AND (FindType(M1)=Video) AND M IN FindObjWithFeature(Jane Shady) AND M1 IN FindObjWithFeature(Big Spender) AND Person IN FindFeaturesinObj (M) AND Person IN FindFeaturesinObj (M1) AND PersonJane Shady AND PersonBig Spender

Querying SMDSs (Hybrid Representation) : 

MM Database 24 Querying SMDSs (Hybrid Representation) SMDS-SQL may be used to query multimedia objects which are stored in the uniform representation. “What is it about the hybrid representation that causes our query language to change?” In the uniform representation, all the data sources being queried are SMDSs, while in the hybrid representation, different (non-SMDS) representations may be used. A hybrid media representation basically consists of two parts - a set of media objects that use the uniform representation (which we have already treated in the preceding section), and a set of media-types that use their own specialized access structures and query language.

Querying SMDSs (Uniform Representation) (cont.) : 

MM Database 25 Querying SMDSs (Uniform Representation) (cont.) To extend SMDS-SQL to Hybrid-Multimedia SQL (HM-SQL for short), we need to do two things: First, HM-SQL, must have the ability to express queries in each of the specialized languages used by these non-SMDS sources Second, HM-SQL, must have the ability to express “joins” and other similar binary algebraic operations between SMDS sources and non-SMDS sources

HM-SQL : 

MM Database 26 HM-SQL HM-SQL is exactly like SQL except that the SELECT, FROM, WHERE clauses are extended as follows: the SELECT and FROM clauses are treated in exactly the same way as in SMDS-SQL. The WHERE statement allows (in addition to standard SQL constructs) expressions of the form term IN MS:func_call where 1. term is either a variable (in which case it ranges over the output type of func_call) or an object having the same output type as func_call as defined in the media source MS and

HM-SQL (cont.) : 

MM Database 27 HM-SQL (cont.) 2. either MS=SMDS and func_call is one of the five SMDS functions described earlier, or 3. MS is not an SMDS-media source., and func_call is a query in QL(MS). Thus, there are 2 differences between HM-SQL and SMDS-SQL: 1. func_calls occurring in the WHERE clause must be explicitly annotated with the media-source involved, and 2. queries from the query languages of the individual (non-SMDS) media-source implementations may be embedded within an HM-SQL query. This latter feature makes HM-SQL very powerful indeed as it is, in principle, able to express queries in other, third-party, or legacy media implementations.

Sample HM-SQL Statements : 

MM Database 28 Sample HM-SQL Statements Find all video clips containing Big Spender, from both the video sources, videol, and video2, where the former is implemented via an SMDS and the latter is implemented via a legacy video database: SELECT M FROM smds video1, videodb video2 WHERE M IN smds:FindObjWithFeature(Big Spender) OR M IN videodb:FindVideoWithObject(Big Spender)

Sample HM-SQL Statements (cont.) : 

MM Database 29 Sample HM-SQL Statements (cont.) Find all people seen with Big Spender in either video1, video2, or idb. (SELECT P1 FROM smds video1 V1 WHERE V1 IN smds:FindObjWithFeature(Big Spender)AND P1 IN smds:FindFeaturesinObj(V1) AND PlBig Spender) UNION (SELECT P2 FROM videodb video2 V2 WHERE V2 IN videodb:FindVideoWithObject(Big Spender) AND P2 IN videodb:FindObjectsinVideo(V2) AND P2Big Spender) UNION (SELECT P3 FROM imagedb idb I3 WHERE I3 IN imagedb:getpic(Big Spender) AND P3 IN imagedb:getfeatures(I3) AND P3Big Spender)

Connective Summary : 

MM Database 30 Connective Summary When faced with the problem of creating a multimedia database, we must take into account the following two questions: What kinds of media data should this MM database provide access to? Do legacy algorithms already exist (and are they available) to index this data reliably and accurately using content-based indexing methods?  determine the use of uniform representation or hybrid representation !! In the text, the author has also shown how to index SMDSs with enhanced inverted indices (an easy-to-implement mechanism for indexing large document bases).
