Abstract: Multidimensional image retrieval (MIR) views an image
as a multidimensional object, where each dimension is a channel for retrieval. MIR
has the potential of putting at work together the
many methods and techniques for image retrieval proposed in several different fields
of computer science. We have developed a model of MIR, based on a fuzzy description
logic, that identifies two main dimensions in an image (form and content) and views
MIR as a special form of uncertain implication. In this paper, we present \arianna,
a system that implements the model. ARIANNA allows to quickly develop a prototype
of a MIR application, and use it to test the
adequacy of the application to the user's functional requirements.
