Automatic image annotation via local multi-label classification
As the consequence of semantic gap, visual similarity does not guarantee semantic similarity, which in general is conflicting with the inherent assumption of many generativebased image annotation methods. While discriminative learning approach had often been used to classify images into different semantic classes, its efficiency is often impaired by the problems of multi-labeling and large scale concept space typically encountered in practical image annotation tasks. In this paper, we explore solutions to the problems of large scale concept space learning and mismatch between semantic and visual space. To tackle the first problem, we explore the use of higher level semantic space with lower dimension by clustering correlated keywords into topics in the local neighborhood. The topics are used as lexis for assigning multiple labels for unlabeled images. To tackle the problem of semantic gap, we aim to reduce the bias between visual and semantic spaces by finding optimal margins in both ...
