Review on Tag based Image Search by Social Re-Ranking
International Journal for Research in Applied Science and Engineering Technology
There are many photos sharing websites like Flickr which allow users to annotate pictures with descriptive keywords called tags. Tag based image search helps to find images contributed by users in such social media sharing websites, which significantly support to the development of the web image retrieval and organization. How to make top positioned ranked result relevant is the challenging problem. For that we re-rank images according to visual data, semantic data and social clues. The
... clues. The inter-user re-ranking and intra-user re-ranking methods are used to achieve a good trade-off between the diversity and relevance performance. First we sort the images contributed by different users using inter-user ranking. Then we apply intra-user ranking method on ranked image set. Here, the most relevant image of each user is chosen from the image set. And these images form the final result. We construct an inverted index structure for image dataset to improve the searching process.
