Chaoran Cui, Jun Ma, Tao Lian, Xiaofang Wang, Zhaochun Ren
2013 Proceedings of the 36th international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval - SIGIR '13  
Given a new image, the scheme is to first find its most similar neighbors from labeled images, and then propagate the keywords associated with the neighbors to it.  ...  Recently, the nearest-neighbor based scheme has been proposed and achieved good performance for image annotation.  ...  CONCLUSIONS In this paper, we have introduced a novel image annotation method, which adapts the conventional nearest-neighbor based approaches with a ranking-oriented neighbor search mechanism.  ...

An Architecture of a Web-Based Collaborative Image Search Engine [chapter]

Wei-Cheng Lai, Gerard Sychay, Edward Chang
2002 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
On the one hand, the improved annotation can help provide better initial keyword-search results to seed perception-based image retrieval.  ...  We show that the learner can collect user feedback and use it to perform collaborative image annotation in addition to learning subjective query concepts.  ...  When a text-based search is initiated with keywords, images are ranked and retrieved based on their combined con dence factors in the matching labels.  ...

Image Annotation by Graph-Based Inference With Integrated Multiple/Single Instance Representations

Jinhui Tang, Haojie Li, Guo-Jun Qi, Tat-Seng Chua
2010 IEEE transactions on multimedia  
In most of the learning-based image annotation approaches, images are represented using multiple-instance (local) or single-instance (global) features.  ...  Thus this paper explores a unified learning framework that combines the multiple-instance and single-instance representations for image annotation.  ...  To support this, keywords describing the images are required to retrieve and rank images. Manual annotation is a direct way to obtain these keywords. However, it is labor-intensive and error-prone.  ...
