This paper proposes a semantic clustering scheme to reduce search space and semantic gap, two most challenging tasks in content-based image retrieval. By performing clustering before image retrieval, the search space can be reduced to those clusters that are close to the query target. In the proposed method, image sub-regions/segments are grouped into clusters in terms of their semantic meanings in addition to their low level features. Ideally, one cluster approximates one semantic concept or a… CONTINUE READING
