Paper Abstract

We present a generic model to describe image and video content by a combination of semantic entities and low level features for semantically meaningful and fast retrieval. The proposed model includes semantic entities such as Object, Event and Actors to express relations between the first two. The use of Actors entity increases the efficiency of certain types of search, while the use of semantic and linguistic roles increases the expression capability of the model. The model also contains links to high-level media segments such as actions and interactions, and low level media segments such as elementary motion and reaction units, as well as low-level features such as motion parameters and trajectories. Based on this model, we propose image and video retrieval combining semantic and low-level information. The retrieval performance of our system is tested by using query-by-annotation, query-by-example, query-by-sketch, and a combination of them.
