In this work, we applied a co-clustering concept in content based image recognition field. In this aim, we introduced a two levels similarity modelling (TLSM) concept. This approach is based on a new images similarity formulation using obtained co-clusters. The obtained results show a real improvement of image recognition accuracy in comparison with obtained accuracy obtained using one of classical co-clustering systems.
