"The editors make a cogent argument in their preface as to the critical need for books such as this; namely, with the ever-decreasing costs and inversely proportional increasing size of storage and memory chips, massive multimedia (and speech) collections are no longer the sole domain of professional studios… This book brings to light the great variety of technologies and applications for multimedia data mining and is sure to be of interest to academic researchers and industrial practitioners alike." (Michael Goldberg, ACM Computing Reviews, Vol. 49 (11), November 2008)
"The book … cover the broad area of multimedia data mining and knowledge discovery. It consists of five parts in 25 chapters. In each chapter, leading researchers from academia or industry report their research work on selected topics, which are extended from papers presented at the Multimedia Data Mining Workshops in 2003 and 2004. … the book is suitable for scientists, engineers, and senior graduate students who work in related fields." (Jie Yu, Journal of Electronic Imaging, Vol. 17 (4), October-December, 2008)
