    Image search plays an important role in our daily life. Given a query, the image search engine is to retrieve images related to it. However, different queries have different search difficulty levels. For some queries, they are easy to be retrieved (the search engine can return very good search results). While for others, they are difficult (the search results are very unsatisfactory). Thus, it is ... View full abstract»

    Increasingly developed social sharing websites like Flickr and Youtube allow users to create, share, annotate, and comment medias. The large-scale user-generated metadata not only facilitate users in sharing and organizing multimedia content, but provide useful information to improve media retrieval and management. Personalized search serves as one of such examples where the web search experience ... View full abstract»

    With the explosive growth of web videos on the Internet, it becomes challenging to efficiently browse hundreds or even thousands of videos. When searching an event query, users are often bewildered by the vast quantity of web videos returned by search engines. Exploring such results will be time consuming and it will also degrade user experience. In this paper, we present an approach for event dri... View full abstract»

    The sparse coding based approaches for image recognition have recently shown improved performance than traditional bag-of-features technique. Due to high dimensionality of the image descriptor space, existing systems usually require very large codebook size to minimize coding error in order to get satisfactory accuracy. While most research efforts try to address the problem by constructing a relat... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we present a face annotation system to automatically collect and label celebrity faces from the web. With the proposed system, we have constructed a large-scale dataset called “Celebrities on the Web,” which contains 2.45 million distinct images of 421 436 celebrities and is orders of magnitude larger than previous datasets. Collecting and labeling such a large-scale d... View full abstract»

    The idea of using image and video data available in the World-Wide Web (WWW) as training data for classifier construction has received some attention in the past few years. In this paper, we present a novel incremental and scalable web-supervised learning system that continuously learns appearance models for image categories with heterogeneous appearances and improves these models periodically.

    The number of web images has been explosively growing due to the development of network and storage technology. These images make up a large amount of current multimedia data and are closely related to our daily life. To efficiently browse, retrieve and organize the web images, numerous approaches have been proposed. Since the semantic concepts of the images can be indicated by label information, ...

    Action recognition in uncontrolled videos is a challenging task, where it is relatively hard to find the large amount of required training videos to model all the variations of the domain. This paper addresses this challenge and proposes a generic method for action recognition. The idea is to use images collected from the Web to learn representations of actions and leverage this knowledge to autom... View full abstract»

    There is an urgent need to organize and manage images of people automatically due to the recent explosion of such data on the Web in general and in social media in particular. Beyond face detection and face recognition, which have been extensively studied over the past decade, perhaps the most interesting aspect related to human-centered images is the relationship of people in the image.

    In this paper, we propose a new tag-based image retrieval framework to improve the retrieval performance of a group of related personal images captured by the same user within a short period of an event by leveraging millions of training web images and their associated rich textual descriptions. For any given query tag (e.g., “car”), the inverted file method is employed to automatica... View full abstract»

    Sufficient training examples are essential for effective learning of semantic visual concepts. In practice, however, acquiring noise-free training examples has always been expensive. Recently the rapid popularization of social media websites, such as Flickr, has made it possible to collect training exemplars without human assistance. This paper proposes a novel and efficient approach to collect tr... View full abstract»

    Searching for the co-occurrence of two visual concepts in unlabeled images is an important step towards answering complex user queries. Traditional visual search methods use combinations of the confidence scores of individual concept detectors to tackle such queries. In this paper we introduce the notion of bi-concepts, a new concept-based retrieval method that is directly learned from social-tagg... View full abstract»
