Integrate Content-Based Image Retrieval in Elasticsearch

Hi,

I am wondering how dificult would be to integrate an API like LIRE (
http://www.semanticmetadata.net/lire/) into ElasticSearch. LIRe is an
Content-Based Image Retrieval Library based on Lucene. It relies on lucene
indexes to search image descriptors.
How the integration would be possible? Creating a new module in
ElasticSearch?

If what it does is parse images and creates fields with possible more info on them, and possibly have specific set of queries associated with it, then it should not be too difficult to write a plugin that does that.

What LIRe does is extract image features (from a
java.awt.image.BufferedImage) and store them as text in lucene documents
during indexing. This document can be indexed normally using Lucene's
IndexWriter. For search it receives a BufferedImage as query and returns
ImageSearchHits. It uses the IndexReader directly instead of IndexSearcher.
More info about LIRe can be found on this paper:
http://kusu.comp.nus.edu.sg/proceedings/mm08/mm/p1085.pdf

I don't know elastic search well. There's any docs about how to create
plugins? How can I get started with elastic search internals?

Get the source code and have a look. Check the attachments plugin for introduction of a new field type.

Hi Aécio,
I was wondering how far did you get into that project.
I am also interested in a solution combining both technologies. (Even a paid one)
