A Novel System for Advanced Content-Based Image Retrieval


We describe a novel system that strives to achieve advanced content-based image retrieval using seamless combination of two complementary approaches: on one hand, we propose a new color clustering method to better capture color properties of the original images; on the other hand, expecting that image regions acquired from the original images inevitably contain many errors, we make use of the available erroneous, ill-segmented image regions to accomplish the object region-based image retrieval. We also propose an effective image indexing scheme to facilitate fast and efficient image matching and retrieval. The carefully designed experimental evaluation shows that our proposed image retrieval system surpasses other methods under the comparison in terms of not only quantitative measures, but also image retrieval capabilities.
