Paper Abstract

This paper presents a scheme which utilizes comments given to images on an image-sharing site in order to obtain an appropriate image for insertion into poem-like weblogs (blogs) as a way to represent their atmosphere (impression). The result shows that utilizing comments is effective. To achieve this purpose, there are two issues: how impression words are extracted from blogs and how images representing the impression words are obtained. Assuming that it is important to obtain images representing the impression words, this paper focuses on only the latter issue. We hypothesize that comments and tags extracted from an image-sharing site can be adequate for obtaining images corresponding to impression words at low cost. In particular, utilizing comments can be more appropriate for the image search with impression words than utilizing tags because the impression words are often used in comments. Therefore, we propose a scheme which utilizes comments to obtain appropriate images. In order to investigate the effectiveness of utilizing comments, conformance between impression words and the images was evaluated. The rating for conformance is 3.5 on a scale of 1 to 5 when utilizing comments, which is 0.6 higher than when utilizing tags.
