Relevance feedback has been shown to be a very effective tool for enhancing retrieval results in text retrieval. In content-based image retrieval it is more and more frequently used and very good results have been obtained. However, too much negative feedback may destroy a query as good features get negative weightings. This paper compares a variety of(More)
Evaluation of retrieval performance is a crucial problem in content-based image retrieval (CBIR). Many diierent methods for measuring the performance of a system have been created and used by researchers. This article discusses the advantages and shortcomings of the performance measures currently used. Problems such as a commonimage database for performance(More)
The first step in the analysis of video content is the partitioning of a long video sequence into short homogeneous temporal segments. The homogeneity property ensures that the segments are taken by a single camera and represent a continuous action in time and space. These segments can then be used as atomic temporal components for higher level analysis(More)
Multi-view clustering is an important problem in information retrieval due to the abundance of data offering many perspectives and generating multi-view representations. We investigate in this short note a late fusion approach for multi-view clustering based on the latent modeling of cluster-cluster relationships. We derive a probabilistic multi-view(More)
In this paper we introduce and describe the Multimedia Retrieval Markup Language (MRML). This XML-based markup language is the basis for an open communication protocol for content-based image retrieval systems (CBIRSs). MRML was initially designed as a means of separating CBIR engines from their user interfaces. It is, however, also extensible as the basis(More)
Acknowledgements First of all, I would like to thank Dr. Michel Deriaz for his support, guidance and advice throughout this project, and Dr. Stéphane Marchand-Maillet for helping me with corrections of this report. I also thank Julien Pession for his valuable input and help on the implementation side, as well as all those who have supported me during the(More)
To demonstrate the performance of content-based image retrieval systems (CBIRSs), there is not yet any standard data set that is widely used. The only dataset used by a large number of research groups are the Corel Photo CDs. There are more than 800 of those CDs, each containing 100 pictures roughly similar in theme. Unfortunately, basically every(More)
In retrieval, indexing and classification of multimedia data an efficient information fusion of the different modalities is essential for the system's overall performance. Since information fusion, its influence factors and performance improvement boundaries have been lively discussed in the last years in different research communities, we will review their(More)
