IBM Multimedia Analysis and Retrieval System (IMARS) - overview

IMARS is a novel visual feature-based machine-learning framework for large-scale semantic modeling and classification of image and video content.

IMARS provides a large number of built-in classifiers for visual categories that cover places, people, objects, settings, activities and events. It is easy to add new ones.

IMARS can work on PC or laptop (trial version is available at IBM alphaWorks).

IMARS can also work at large-scale for high-volume batch processing of millions and images and videos per day.

Several demos of IMARS are available (see IMARS demos)
