The Approach to Image Classification by Hybrid Linguistic Method

Part of the Studies in Computational Intelligence book series (SCI, volume 551)


Image retrieval has become a popular field in computer science. Nevertheless, there are many efforts needed to be done to solve the problems that to retrieval images by using logical inference or abstract attributes. In this paper a group of linguistic descriptors and textures set is formed. This word-texture set are then used to select images from database. The experiment results were successful and suggested that our hypothesis is very promising and practical.
