DILIGENT Data Challenge on EGEE Infrastructure
Geneva, December 2007 - The success of DILIGENT's recent data challenge on image feature extraction,  executed on the EGEE infrastructure, has enabled one of the world's  largest collections of multimedia metadata to be made publicly available for research purposes.

The  DILIGENT team used the EGEE computing Grid to process 37 million images  from the online Flickr database in just 16 weeks. This computation generated approximately 112 million text and image objects- nearly 5 TB of data - containing more than 150 million extracted features. This is equivalent to an average capacity of over 300,000 images per day.
