Learning the semantics of multimedia queries and concepts from a small number of examples
In this paper we unify two supposedly distinct tasks in multimedia retrieval. One task involves answering queries with a few examples. The other involves learning models for semantic concepts, also with a few examples. In our view these two tasks are identical with the only differentiation being the number of examples that are available for training. Once we adopt this unified view, we then apply identical techniques for solving both problems and evaluate the performance using the NIST TRECVID benchmark evaluation data [15]. We propose a combination hypothesis of two complementary classes of techniques, a nearest neighbor model using only positive examples and a discriminative support vector machine model using both positive and negative examples. In case of queries, where negative examples are rarely provided to seed the search, we create pseudo-negative samples. We then combine the ranked lists generated by evaluating the test database using both methods, to create a final ranked ...
