We propose a novel and generic video/image reranking algorithm, IB reranking, which reorders results from text-only searches by discovering the salient visual patterns of relevant and irrelevant shots from the approximate relevance provided by text results. The IB reranking method, based on a rigorous Information Bottleneck (IB) principle, finds the optimal(More)
Multimedia search over distributed sources often result in recurrent images or videos which are manifested beyond the textual modality. To exploit such contextual patterns and keep the simplicity of the keyword-based search, we propose novel reranking methods to leverage the recurrent patterns to improve the initial text search results. The approach,(More)
An efficient indexing method is essential for content-based image retrieval with the exponential growth in large-scale videos and photos. Recently, hash-based methods (e.g., locality sensitive hashing - LSH) have been shown efficient for similarity search. We extend such hash-based methods for retrieving images represented by bags of (high-dimensional)(More)
Leveraging community-contributed data (e.g., blogs, GPS logs, and geo-tagged photos) for travel recommendation is one of the active researches since there are rich contexts and trip activities in such explosively growing data. In this work, we focus on personalized travel recommendation by leveraging the freely available community-contributed photos. We(More)
etc.) are the major interest of users. Thus, with the exponentially growing photos, large-scale content-based face image retrieval is an enabling technology for many emerging applications. In this work, we aim to utilize automatically detected human attributes that contain semantic cues of the face photos to improve content-based face retrieval by(More)
This paper introduces an approach for face cognizance throughout age and in addition a dataset containing variations of age in the wild. We use a data-driven system to deal with the go-age face realization challenge, known as cross-age reference coding (CARC). By using leveraging a colossal-scale snapshot dataset freely available on the web as a reference(More)
The rapid development of technologies in both hardware and software have made content-based multimedia services feasible on mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets; and the strong needs for mobile visual search and recognition have been emerging. While many real applications of visual recognition require a large scale recognition systems, the same(More)
