Inferring semantic concepts from community-contributed images and noisy tags
In this paper, we exploit the problem of inferring images’ semantic concepts from community-contributed images and their associated noisy tags. To infer the concepts more accurately, we propose a novel sparse graph-based semisupervised learning approach for harnessing the labeled and unlabeled data simultaneously. The sparse graph constructed by datum-wise one-vs-all sparse reconstructions of all samples can remove most of the concept-unrelated links among the data, thus is more robust and discriminative than conventional graphs. More importantly, we propose an effective training label refinement strategy within this graphbased learning framework to handle the noise in the tags, by bringing in a dual regularization for both the quantity and sparsity of the noise. In addition, we construct an informative compact concept space with small semantic gap to infer the semantic concepts in this space to bridge the semantic gap. The relations among different concepts are inherently embedd...
