Content-based video search reranking can be regarded as a process that uses visual content to recover the "true" ranking list from the noisy one generated based on textual information. This paper explicitly formulates this problem in the Bayesian framework, i.e., maximizing the ranking score consistency among visually similar video shots while minimizing(More)
Visual reranking has been proven effective to refine text-based video and image search results. It utilizes visual information to recover “true” ranking list from the noisy one generated by text-based search. Visual reranking improves textbased search results by incorporating both textual and visual information. In this paper, we model the textual and(More)
Image search reranking methods usually fail to capture the user's intention when the query term is ambiguous. Therefore, reranking with user interactions, or active reranking, is highly demanded to effectively improve the search performance. The essential problem in active reranking is how to target the user's intention. To complete this goal, this paper(More)
One of the fundamental problems in image search is to rank image documents according to a given textual query. We address two limitations of the existing image search engines in this paper. First, there is no straightforward way of comparing textual keywords with visual image content. Image search engines therefore highly depend on the surrounding texts,(More)
Given the explosive growth of the Web and the popularity of image sharing Web sites, image retrieval plays an increasingly important role in our daily lives. Search engines aim to provide beneficial image search results to users in response to queries. The quality of image search results depends on many factors: chosen search algorithms, ranking functions,(More)
Visual reranking is effective to improve the performance of the text-based video search. However, existing reranking algorithms can only achieve limited improvement because of the well-known semantic gap between low-level visual features and high-level semantic concepts. In this article, we adopt interactive video search reranking to bridge the semantic gap(More)
Image search reranking is an effective approach to refining the text-based image search result. In the reranking process, the estimation of visual similarity is critical to the performance. However, the existing measures, based on global or local features, cannot be adapted to different queries. In this paper, we propose to estimate a query aware image(More)
