Grouping images into (semantically) meaningful categories using low-level visual features is a challenging and important problem in content-based image retrieval. Using binary Bayesian classifiers, we attempt to capture high-level concepts from low-level image features under the constraint that the test image does belong to one of the classes. Specifically, we consider the hierarchical classification of vacation images; at the highest level, images are classified as indoor or outdoor; outdoor… Expand
A Comparative Study of Global and Local Feature Representations in Image Database Categorization
TLDR
This paper aims at comparing each of these feature representation methods and their combinations by using a standard classifier over thirty categories and shows that the combined global and block-based feature representation performs the best. Expand

TLDR
This paper presents a stratified approach to both binary (outdoor-indoor) and multiple category of scene classification, which first learns mixture models for 20 basic classes of local image content based on color and texture information, and produces 20 probability density response maps indicating the likelihood that each image region was produced by each class.

Efficient Image Classification on Vertically Decomposed Data
TLDR
This paper proposes a nearest neighbor based algorithm in image classification that vertically decomposes image features into separate bit vectors, one for each bit position of the values in the features, and approximates a number of candidates of nearest neighbors by examining the absolute difference of total variation between the images in the repositories and the unclassified image.

An Efficient Image Retrieval Based on Fusion of Fast Features and Query Image Classification
TLDR
An efficient and fast CBIR system is proposed, which is based on a fusion of computationally light weighted colour and texture features; chromaticity moment, colour percentile, and local binary pattern (LBP) and a supervised query image classification and retrieval model, which filters all irrelevant class images.
