The query topics of the St. Andrews collection are defined in a way that makes visual retrieval hard as visual similarity plays a marginal role whereas semantics and background knowledge are extremely important, which can only be obtained from text. This article describes the submission of an entirely visual result. It also proposes improvements for visual retrieval systems with the current data. Section 4 explains possible ways to make this query task more appealing to visual retrieval research groups, explaining problems of visual retrieval and what The task can do to overcome present problems. A benchmarking event is needed for visual information retrieval to remove barriers in performance. ImageCLEF can be this event and identify areas where visual retrieva...
