AssisTag: Seamless Integration of Content-based and Keyword-based Image Exploration for Category Search
Category search is a searching activity where the user has an example image and searches for other images of the same category. This activity often requires appropriate keywords of target categories making it difficult to search images without prior knowledge of appropriate keywords. Text annotations attached to images are a valuable resource for helping users to find appropriate keywords for the target categories. We propose an image exploration system in this article for category image search without the prior knowledge of category keywords. Our system integrates content-based and keyword-based image exploration and seamlessly switches exploration types according to user interests. The system enables users to learn target categories both in image and keyword representation through exploration activities. Our user study demonstrated the effectiveness of image exploration using our system, especially for the search of images with unfamiliar category compared to the single-modality image search.

Publication date: 2016-11-01
The Journal of Imaging Science and Technology (JIST) is dedicated to the advancement of imaging science knowledge, the practical applications of such knowledge, and how imaging science relates to other fields of study. The pages of this journal are open to reports of new theoretical or experimental results, and to comprehensive reviews. Only original manuscripts that have not been previously published, nor currently submitted for publication elsewhere, should be submitted.
IS&T's JIST-first publication option allows authors wishing to present their work at conferences, but have a journal citation for their paper, to submit a paper to JIST that follows the same rigorous peer-review vetting and publication process as traditional JIST articles, but with the benefit of a condensed time-to-publication time frame and guaranteed conference presentation slot.
Please note: For purposes of its Digital Library content, IS&T defines Open Access as papers that will be downloadable in their entirety for free in perpetuity. Copyright restrictions on papers vary; see individual paper for details.
