Google Summer of Code is designed to encourage student participation in open source development. Over the past 11 years, Google Summer of Code has brought together almost 11,000 students and 500 open source projects to create millions of lines of code.
vitrivr has participated to GSoC 2016 with three projects being successfully completed:
cthulhu - Vitrivr Feature Extraction Pipeline
|https://github.com/vitrivr/cthulhu/||The aim of this project is to build a distributed server-client-based job for the video feature extraction at off-line time.|
Motion-based Retrieval: Feature Extraction
|https://zydu51.github.io/cineast/||This project aims at optimizing the current motion-based retrieval, including creating new motion features, changing the retrieval process and UI front-end accordingly.|
Natural Language Query Interface
|https://prateek1985.github.io/vitrivr-ui/||This project aims at building a natural language query interface for vitrivr that gives full control to the user to interact with the user interface by speaking voice commands in a complete natural way.|
