Abstract

In this paper, we present our approaches for the WikipediaMM task at ImageCLEF 2008. We first experimented with a text-based image retrieval approach with query expansion, where the extension terms were automatically selected from a knowledge base that was semi-automatically constructed from Wikipedia. Encouragingly, the experimental results rank in the first place among all submitted runs. We also implemented a content-based image retrieval approach with query-dependent visual concept detection. Then cross-media retrieval was successfully carried out by independently applying the two meta-search tools and then combining the results through a weighted summation of scores. Though not submitted, this approach outperforms our text-based and content-based approaches remarkably.
