Students get basic overview about search techniques in the web environment that is interpreted as a very large distributed and heterogeneous storage of documents. In particular, students acquire information about search techniques in text and hypertext documents (the web pages themselves) and about feature extraction from web pages. They get detailed knowledge of similarity search in multimedia databases (generally in collections of unstructured data). They also learn techniques for programming web search engines for the mentioned data types (documents).


Basic knowledge and skills in algorithmics, programming, data structures and database technologies.

Study Objective:

This module is recommended for students that are interested in deeper understanding of web search engines. In particular, text, hypertext, and multimedia retrieval techniques are explored. The retrieval techniques are described in three layers: theoretical (model), algorithmical, and application. Then, in experimental projects the students can implement the methods and employ them in various web applications.
