Markus Wachter (Masterarbeit): Analysing Visual Appearance by Featural And Relational Similarity -- How Different Are Smartphones?

In this thesis the visual appearance of smartphones was analyzed by calculating a similarity value between two devices. This similarity calculation is affected by featural and relational parameters which describe the design and shape of the smartphones. A short overview of how similarity can be calculated is given and what features you can retrieve if you represent a smartphone. A possible representation of a smartphone using XML Schema is introduced. A specfic approach to similarity assessment of smart phones is proposed. Finally, a newly developped tool supporting purchase decisions for smartphones is presented.
