Explanation 2. Video Vortex, the Next-Generation Associative Video and Music Search Engine

Shown in the lower left-hand corner is the video selected by the user. Videos with similar video characteristics are shown on the upper left-hand corner. In the lower right-hand corner are videos with similar music and audio characteristics. None of the videos are tagged. Video Vortex makes automatic recommendations by computing and comparing video and audio feature quantities. As the user selects videos shown in the interface that are close in similarity to their own images, more videos with similar images and music/audio are recommended by Video Vortex. A network of associations proliferates, leading to discoveries unattainable with just keywords.
