multimedia Digital Libraries – Personal Photo Collections
In the era of social networks, smart-phones and tablets, the cost of handling tons of images is quickly raising. Manual tagging is costly… and quite old fashion!!!

Especially in personal photo collection, the user is interested in “who” is in the picture, and “where” and “when” the picture has been shot. Based on these intuitions, we have developed methods for a smart organization of personal photo collections.
