Can a Workspace Help to Overcome the Query Formulation Problem in Image Retrieval? [chapter]

Jana Urban, Joemon M. Jose
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We have proposed a novel image retrieval system that incorporates a workspace where users can organise their search results.  ...  The results of this study show that the workspace is more useful with respect to both of the above aspects. The proposed approach leads to a more effective and enjoyable search experience.  ...  The workspace helps to conceptualise and diversify tasks. 3. The grouping process helps to overcome the query formulation problem. Procedure.  ...

Evaluating a workspace's usefulness for image retrieval

Jana Urban, Joemon M. Jose
2006 Multimedia Systems  
Image searching is a creative process. We have proposed a novel image retrieval system that supports creative search sessions by allowing the user to organise their search results on a workspace.  ...  In particular, we focus on its effect on task conceptualisation and query formulation. A traditional relevance feedback system serves as a baseline.  ...  This work was partially supported by the EPSRC (Grant ref: EP/C004108/1). This publication only reflects the authors' views.  ...

2006 International Journal of Intelligent Systems  
The problems of content-based image retrieval~CBIR!  ...  To address the semantic gap and long-term multifaceted information needs, we propose a "retrieval in context" system, EGO.  ...  • The iterative organization process helps to overcome the query formulation problem, because it is closer to real-life search strategies.  ...

Supporting exploratory video retrieval tasks with grouping and recommendation

Martin Halvey, David Vallet, David Hannah, Joemon M. Jose
2014 Information Processing & Management  
In order to help facilitate these exploratory video search tasks we present a system that utilises two complementary approaches: the first a new search paradigm that allows the semantic grouping of videos  ...  with the current user need of information in order to provide recommendations, and second is a local recommendation, which exploits the organisational features of ViGOR in order to provide more localised  ...  Some of these problems can be overcome by providing effective interfaces for interactive multimedia retrieval.  ...

Bridging the gap between expert and novice users for video search

Martin Halvey, Joemon M. Jose
2012 International Journal of Multimedia Information Retrieval  
Contemporary video retrieval systems are wanting in terms of helping users find appropriate videos.  ...  In an attempt to garner a greater understanding of the impact of expertise on video search, a user evaluation that is designed to investigate the role of expertise in video search was conducted.  ...  This section has presented an introduction to problems associated with video search and some systems that attempt to overcome this problem; a more complete introduction to video retrieval interfaces can  ...

Adaptive image retrieval using a Graph model for semantic feature integration

Jana Urban, Joemon M. Jose
2006 Proceedings of the 8th ACM international workshop on Multimedia information retrieval - MIR '06  
The framework models both feature similarities and semantic relations in a single graph. Querying in this model is implemented using the theory of random walks.  ...  However, the model is not restricted to the image domain and could easily be employed for retrieving multimedia data (and even a combination of different domains, eg images, audio and text documents).  ...  The research leading to this paper was supported by the European Commission under contract FP6-027026, Knowledge Space of semantic inference for automatic annotation and retrieval of multimedia content-K-Space  ...

An Explorative Study of Interface Support for Image Searching [chapter]

Jana Urban, Joemon M. Jose
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
It combines the search and management process, which -according to our hypothesis -helps the user to conceptualise their search tasks and to overcome the query formulation problem.  ...  In this paper we study interfaces for image retrieval systems. Current image retrieval interfaces are limited to providing query facilities and result presentation.  ...  Further, we test our hypothesis that EGO helps to overcome the query formulation problem, since -relying on the in-built recommendation system -there is no need to create a query in order to initiate a  ...

Human-Machine Cooperation in Large-Scale Multimedia Retrieval: A Survey

Kimiaki Shirahama, Marcin Grzegorzek, Bipin Indurkhya
2015 Journal of Problem Solving  
Large-Scale Multimedia Retrieval (LSMR) is the task to fast analyze a large amount of multimedia data like images or videos and accurately find the ones relevant to a certain semantic meaning.  ...  We hope that this paper will create a bridge to enable researchers in different fields to communicate about the LSMR problem and lead to a ground-breaking next generation of LSMR systems.  ...  In other words, LSMR can be considered as a binary classification problem to discriminate between relevant and irrelevant examples to the query.  ...
