Hierarchical clustering-based navigation of image search results

Haoyang Ding, Jing Liu, Hanqing Lu
2008 Proceeding of the 16th ACM international conference on Multimedia - MM '08  
First, we extract some query-related key phrases to enumerate specific semantics of the given query and cluster them into some semantic clusters using K-lines-based clustering algorithm.  ...  At last, a novel user interface (UI) is designed to provide users with the diverse and helpful information based on the hierarchical clustering structure.  ...  Hierarchical Cluster Navigation View The hierarchical cluster information is organized in the hierarchical cluster navigation view which is embedded in the left frame.  ...

Cluster-based retrieval using language models

Xiaoyong Liu, W. Bruce Croft
2004 Proceedings of the 27th annual international conference on Research and development in information retrieval - SIGIR '04  
We show that cluster-based retrieval can perform consistently across collections of realistic size, and significant improvements over document-based retrieval can be obtained in a fully automatic manner  ...  Previous research on cluster-based retrieval has been inconclusive as to whether it does bring improved retrieval effectiveness over document-based retrieval.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS This work was supported in part by the Center for Intelligent Information Retrieval, in part by NSF grant #IIS-9907018, and in part by SPAWARSYSCEN-SD grant number N66001-02-1-8903.  ...

Re-ranking algorithm using post-retrieval clustering for content-based image retrieval

Gunhan Park, Yunju Baek, Heung-Kyu Lee
2005 Information Processing & Management  
Next, the retrieved images are analyzed using hierarchical agglomerative clustering methods (HACM) and the rank of the results is adjusted according to the distance of a cluster from a query.  ...  In addition, we analyze the effects of clustering methods, querycluster similarity functions, and weighting factors in the proposed method.  ...  So, most of the research on cluster analysis in information retrieval has employed hierarchical methods. Hierarchical clustering methods can be classified into two kinds: agglomerative and divisive.  ...
