|Title:||Versus: A Framework for General Content-Based Comparisons|
|Published:||October 08, 2012|
|Abstract:||Versus is a framework for the execution and dissemination of customizable content-based file comparison methods. Given digital objects such as files, database entries, or in-memory data structures, we are interested in establishing their proximity (i.e. similarity or dissimilarity) based on the information encoded within the files (text, images, 3D, video, audio, etc.). We provide an implementation of this abstraction as a Java API and a RESTful service API. This implementation includes a set of tools to support access and execution of content-based comparisons both on local and distributed computational resources, as well as a library of methods focused on images, 3D models, text, and documents comprised of the three.|
