Abstract

We study several semantic concept-based query expansion and re-ranking scheme and compare different ontology-based expansion methods in image search and retrieval. In particular, we exploit the two concept similarities of different concept expansion ontology-WordNet Similarity, Wikipedia Similarity. Furthermore, we compare the keywords semantic distance with the precision of image search results with query expansion according to different concept expansion algorithms. We also compare the image retrieval precision of searching with the expanded query and original plain query. Preliminary experiments have been able to demonstrate that the two proposed retrieval mechanism has the potential to outperform unaided approaches.
