We introduce a new interactive system: a game that is fun and can be used to create valuable output. When people play the game they help determine the contents of images by providing meaningful labels for them. If the game is played as much as popular online games, we estimate that most images on the Web can be labeled in a few months. Having proper labels associated with each image on the Web would allow for more accurate image search, improve the accessibility of sites (by providing… Expand
Designing Image Labeling Games For More Informative Tags
TLDR
This thesis describes the design and implementation of two versions of the game Karido, a new image labeling game designed to collect more diverse tags, which are evaluated based on data collected during a three week trial deployment. Expand
Improving accessibility of the web with a computer game
TLDR
Phetch is an enjoyable computer game that collects explanatory descriptions of images, and is an example of a new class of games that provide entertainment in exchange for human processing power. Expand
ClueMeIn: Obtaining More Specific Image Labels Through a Game
TLDR
ClueMeIn is described, an entertaining web-based game with a purpose that generates more detailed image labels than the ESP Game, and how the results can lead to improvements in the accuracy of image searches over image labels generated by the ESP game when using the same public dataset. Expand
Playing games as a way to improve automatic image annotation
TLDR
A framework for image annotation that combines the benefits of three paradigms: automatic annotation, human intervention and entertainment activities is proposed and the ASAA (application for semi-automatic annotation) interface is described, a new computer game for image tagging. Expand
Peekaboom: a game for locating objects in images
TLDR
Peekaboom is an entertaining web-based game that can help computers locate objects in images and is an example of a new, emerging class of games, which not only bring people together for leisure purposes, but also exist to improve artificial intelligence. Expand

TLDR
A new game is introduced, Odd Leaf Out, which provides players with an enjoyable and educational game that serves the purpose of identifying misclassification errors in a large database of labeled leaf images. Expand
An interactive framework for image annotation through gaming
TLDR
This framework is able to assign (or derive) accurate tags for images by eliminating annotations made by a less-rational (cheater) player and integrates a number of different algorithms that are commonly found in image processing and game theoretic approaches to obtain an accurate label. Expand
A Novel Algorithm for Improving the ESP Game
TLDR
A new algorithm to use neglected data to generate new labels for the images using Recycle Unused Answers For Images algorithm (RUAI) is presented and the results reveal that the proposed algorithm improved the results in compared to the ESP game in all cases. Expand
Improving Image Search with PHETCH
TLDR
Phetch is presented, an engaging multiplayer game that allows people to attach accurate explanatory text captions to arbitrary images on the Web and collects valuable information that can be applied towards improving image retrieval. Expand
ClueMeIn: Enhancing the ESP Game to Obtain More Specific Image Labels
TLDR
ClueMeIn is introduced, an entertaining web-based game that uses a similar format to obtain more detailed image labels than the ESP game, and will improve the accuracy of image searches and better accessibility for the visually impaired. Expand

TLDR
A content-based retrieval strategy that can tell whether there are naked people present in an image and an effective mask for skin regions is demonstrated, which introduces a new view of object recognition. Expand

TLDR
It is concluded that link analysis, a proven effective technique for Web page search, can improve the performance of Web image retrieval, as well as extend its definition to include the retrieval of image hubs and containers. Expand
Clustering art
TLDR
This work extends a recently developed method for learning the semantics of image databases using text and pictures and uses WordNet to provide semantic grouping information and to help disambiguate word senses, as well as emphasize the hierarchical nature of semantic relationships. Expand

TLDR
The model is very promising for information retrieval tasks such as database browsing and searching for images based on text and/or image features, and can be used for novel applications such as associating words with pictures, and unsupervised learning for object recognition. Expand

TLDR
This work shows how to cluster words that individually are difficult to predict into clusters that can be predicted well, and cannot predict the distinction between train and locomotive using the current set of features, but can predict the underlying concept. Expand
