Difficulties in Image Retrieval

Document 1.pdf (43 KB)


The semantic gap is often regarded as a major problem in the field of image retrieval research. In this paper, I will show that there are other important topics that should be addressed for improving the image retrieval utility. Among them, the exploitation of limited information and motivating the use of images are considered to be central to the development of image retrieval.
