This paper proposes a short-term and long-term learning approach for content-based image retrieval. The proposed system integrates the user's positive and negative feedback from all iterations to construct a semantic space to remember the user's intent in terms of the high-level hidden semantic features. The short-term learning further refines the query by updating its associated weight vector using both positive and negative examples together with the longterm-learning-based semantic space.

Our proposed retrieval approach demonstrates a promising retrieval performance for an image database of 6000 general-purpose images from COREL, as compared with the conventional retrieval systems.
