Multimodal ranking for image search on community databases

Fabian Richter, Stefan Romberg, Eva Hörster, Rainer Lienhart
2010 Proceedings of the international conference on Multimedia information retrieval - MIR '10  
The image ranking approach presented in this work represents an image collection as a graph that is built using a multimodal similarity measure based on visual features and user tags.  ...  Further we discuss several scalability issues of the proposed approach and show how in this framework queries can be answered fast.  ...  As can be seen from Figure 6 the best results have been obtained by using k = 100 and k = 250 neighbors. Using more neighbors may introduce noise that degrades the quality of the link structure.  ...

Clustering with Soft and Group Constraints [chapter]

Martin H. C. Law, Alexander Topchy, Anil K. Jain
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We develop a new clustering algorithm that extends mixture clustering in the presence of (i) soft constraints, and (ii) grouplevel constraints.  ...  Empirical study demonstrates that the use of soft constraints results in superior data partitions normally unattainable without constraints.  ...  A constrained k-means algorithm is proposed in [4] : must-link data points are replaced by their centroid, and a data point is assigned to the closest cluster center that does not violate any constraints  ...

Graph-Based Clustering with Constraints [chapter]

Rajul Anand, Chandan K. Reddy
2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The proposed approach and its variants are evaluated on UCI datasets and compared with the other constrained-clustering algorithms which embed constraints in a similar fashion.  ...  In this paper, we propose a constrained graph-based clustering method and argue that adding constraints in distance function before graph partitioning will lead to better results.  ...  In this work, the primary emphasis is to demonstrate that adding constraints to graphbased clustering can potentially avoid this problem at least sometimes, if not always.  ...

Semi-supervised Collaborative Clustering with Partial Background Knowledge

Germain Forestier, Cédric Wemmert, Pierre Gançarski
2008 2008 IEEE International Conference on Data Mining Workshops  
In this paper we present a new algorithm for semisupervised clustering. We assume to have a small set of labeled samples and we use it in a clustering algorithm to discover relevant patterns.  ...  Indeed, in complex problems, the user is not always able to produce samples for each class present in the dataset.  ...  In [10] , Wagstaff et al. present a constrained version of the k-means algorithm which uses such constraints to bias the affectation of the objects to the clusters.  ...
