Semantics reinforcement and fusion learning for multimedia streams
Fusion of multimedia streams for enhanced performance is a critical problem for retrieval. However, fusion performance tends to easily overfit the hillclimb set used to learn fusion rules. In this paper, we perform fusion learning for multimedia streams using a greedy performance driven algorithm. In our fusion learning paradigm, fused output is a linear combination of multiple classifiers or ranked streams. The algorithm is inspired from Ensemble Learning [2] but takes that idea further for improving generalization capability. A key application of our fusion learning algorithm, described in this work, is semantics reinforcement using an ensemble of classifiers built using the same training dataset but groundtruth corresponding to different concepts. We expect that classifiers built for semantically close concepts should reinforce each other’s performance and fusion learning is an excellent post-classification way to reinforce semantics and performance. Fusion learning experim...
