The performance of content-based image retrieval using low-level visual content has largely been judged to be unsatisfactory. Perceived performance could probably be improved if retrieval were based on higher-level content. However, researchers have not been very successful in bridging what is now called the "semantic gap" between low-level content detectors and higher-level visual content. This paper describes a novel "top-down" approach to bridging this semantic gap. A list of primitive words… CONTINUE READING
