This paper presents the main features of the image database El Ni?o. The main characteristic of El Ni?o is its search model which, rejecting the idea of querying image databases, proposes an approach based on a mix of browsing and querying that we call exp...
 
On the Definition of Categories for Image Classification Evaluation
Found in: International Conference on Semantic Computing
By Simone Santini
Issue Date:September 2010
pp. 495-501
This paper will study the process of creation of categories for the evaluation of algorithms for semantic classification. In many papers on the topic, one can see that algorithms and methods are evaluated over a set of often haphazardly defined classes, wi...

Found in: International Conference on Semantic Computing
By Alexandra Dumitrescu, Simone Santini
Issue Date:September 2009
pp. 396-401
This paper proposes the use of local context as a way to semantic information retrieval. In our model, rather than trying to formalize the contents of the documents among which the search is done (e.g. by formally annotating them), we try to automatically ...

Emergent Semantics through Interaction in Image Databases
Found in: IEEE Transactions on Knowledge and Data Engineering
By Simone Santini, Amarnath Gupta, Ramesh Jain
Issue Date:May 2001
pp. 337-351
<p><b>Abstract</b>—In this paper, we briefly discuss some aspects of image semantics and the role that it plays for the design of image databases. We argue that images don't have an intrinsic meaning, but that they are endowed with a mean...
