Clustering multimedia is a broad and interesting area of research that typically deals with clusters of different spaces (such as feature space and semantic space) and with different levels of granularity. As opposed to the conventional clustering approaches which deal with simple generation and assignment of documents to clusters, clustering multimedia goes far beyond these approaches. In the multimedia domain, clusterings of different levels and different spaces can be meaningful and can complement each other to form a more consistent and robust interpretation and understanding of multimedia documents.
