Research Overview

With the rapid development of the Internet in recent years, it has become easy to accumulate and exchange large volumes of data in visual, audio, and other media formats. In our research, we aim to investigate architectures of database servers for networked storage and distribution of electronic documents containing large amounts of movie, audio and other multimedia data. On that basis, we will actually design and develop systems. Our main goals are as follows:

  1. Design and implementation of a mechanism for maintaining and controlling consistency of cross-references in multimedia documents: Cross-references called hyperlinks can be provided in electronic documents on a network. Our goal is to realize a system that automatically checks the logical coherence of the reference relationship, and performs (semi-) automatic correction if there is a problem.
  2. Development of an intelligent access control mechanism for multimedia document servers: If anyone could access the information on servers without any limitations, there would be problems in terms of copyrights and privacy. In this area, we are conducting R&D on a basic framework for flexibly and dynamically controlling access to the various information resources on a network.
