An iconic user interface for visual query construction is presented. A naive user can specify his/her intention without learning a query language. A function which computes the(More)
Image retrieval based on semantic contents aims to facilitate intuitive and effective retrieval for the unsophisticated user. We demonstrate a system which employs several techniques to maximize retrieval effectiveness while providing user friendly querying. Our system consists of an icon-based visual query tool with a dynamic object/attribute library and a(More)
