Enhancing Person Annotation for Personal Photo Management Applications
—This paper addresses a sub-problem of the broad annotation problem, namely “person annotation”, associated with personal digital photo management and investigates approaches to enhancing person annotation in personal photo management applications. We study a number of approaches to enhance the performance of semi-automatic person annotation using real-life personal photo collections as the test data. To this end, face and body-patch features are employed to describe the appearance of a person as a means to more effectively capture the identities of re-appearing people in personal photo archives. Experiments are carried out to identify a suitable initial annotation method, compare the performances of eventconstrained person matching with global person matching, and the effect of the size of initial annotation on the overall performance of person annotation in real-life personal photo archives. The evaluation results, presented in terms of HHit rate figures, illustrate that using...
