Abstract
HNC Software Inc. has developed a technology for automatic indexing and retrieval of free text and images. This technique is based on the concept of 'context vectors' which encode a succinct representation of the associated text and features of images. In this paper, we describe some technical issues in the image content addressable retrieval system (ICARS) including image context vector representation, clustering algorithm, retrieval and indexing techniques. ICARS has the capability to retrieve images based on similarity of content by texture and color without performing segmentation or object recognition.
