Abstract

The wikipediaMM task provides a testbed for the system- oriented evaluation of ad-hoc retrieval from a large collection of Wikipedia images. It became a part of the ImageCLEF evaluation campaign in 2008 with the aim of investigating the use of visual and textual sources in combination for improving the retrieval performance. This paper presents an overview of the task’s resources, topics, assessments, participants’ approaches, and main results.
