A Poset Based Approach for Condition Weighting
Current research in multimedia retrieval (MR) does not satisfactorily mirror research results from psychology revealing a different significance of certain characteristics of a media object to a query in terms of similarity. Although the relevance of user-controlled condition weights has been demonstrated, there is a lack of systems supporting users in setting these weights.
In this work, we present a relevance feedback based approach that supports users to set condition weights in order to retrieve results from the MR system that are consistent with their perception of similarity. Condition weights are learned by a machine based learning algorithm from user preferences based on a partially ordered set.
