Speeding up active relevance feedback with approximate kNN retrieval for hyperplane queries

Abstract : In content-based image retrieval, relevance feedback (RF) is a prominent method for reducing the semantic gap between the low-level features describing the content and the usually higher-level meaning of user's target. Recent RF methods are able to identify complex target classes after relatively few feedback iterations. However, because the computational complexity of such methods is linear in the size of the database, retrieval can be quite slow on very large databases. To address this scalability issue for active learning-based RF, we put forward a method that consists in the construction of an index in the feature space associated to a kernel function and in performing approximate kNN hyperplane queries with this feature space index. The experimental evaluation performed on two image databases show that a significant speedup can be achieved at the expense of a limited increase in the number of feedback rounds.
