Multimedia Retrieval Markup Language

Copyright (c) 2001

Abstract: This is a brief description of the Multimedia Retrieval Markup Language (MRML). This XML-based markup language is the basis for an open communication protocol for content-based image retrieval systems (CBIRSs). MRML was initially designed as a means of separating CBIR engines from their user interfaces. It is, however, also extensible as the basis for standardized performance evaluation procedures.

Such a tool is essential for the formulation and implementation of common benchmarks for CBIR. A common protocol can also bring new dynamics to the CBIR field--it makes the development of new systems faster and more efficient, and opens the door of the CBIR research field to other disciplines such as Human-Computer Interaction. The MRML specifications, as well as the first MRML-compliant applications, are freely available and are introduced in this paper.
