In this study, a content based image retrieval (CBIR) system to query the objects in an image database is proposed. Images are represented as collections of regions after being segmented with Normalized Cuts algorithm. MPEG-7 content descriptors are used to encode regions in a 239-dimensional feature space. User of the proposed CBIR system decides which objects to query and labels exemplar regions to train the system using a graphical interface. Fuzzy ARTMAP algorithm is used to learn the mapping between feature vectors and binary coded class identification numbers. Preliminary recognition experiments prove the power of fuzzy ARTMAP as a region classifier. After training, features of all regions in the database are extracted and classified. Simple index files enabling fast access to all regions from a given class are prepared to be used in the querying phase. To retrieve images containing a particular object, user opens an image and selects a query region together with a label in the graphical interface of our system. Then the system ranks all regions in the indexed set of the query class with respect to their L-2 (Euclidean) distance to the query region and displays resulting images. During retrieval experiments, comparable class precisions with respect to exhaustive searching of the database are maintained which demonstrates effectiveness of the classifier in narrowing down the search space.

A Graph-Based Approach for Video Scene Detection
Sakarya, Ufuk; Telatar, Zjya (2008-04-22)
In this paper, a graph-based method for video scene detection is proposed. The method is based on a weighted undirected graph. Each shot is a vertex on the graph. Edge weights among the vertices are evaluated by using spatial and temporal similarities of shots. By using the complete information of the graph, a set of the vertices mostly similar to each other and dissimilar to the others is detected. Temporal continuity constraint is achieved on this set. This set is the first detected video scene. The verti...
REGION-BASED IMAGE SEGMENTATION VIA GRAPH CUTS
Cigla, Cevahir; Alatan, Abdullah Aydın (2008-01-01)
A graph theoretic color image segmentation algorithm is proposed, in which the popular normalized cuts image segmentation method is improved with modifications on its graph structure. The image is represented by a weighted undirected graph, whose nodes correspond to over-segmented regions, instead of pixels, that decreases the complexity of the overall algorithm. In addition, the link weights between the nodes are calculated through the intensity similarities of the neighboring regions. The irregular distri...
Low-level image segmentation based scene classification
Akbaş, Emre (2010-08-26)
This paper is aimed at evaluating the semantic information content of multiscale, low-level image segmentation. As a method of doing this, we use selected features of segmentation for semantic classification of real images. To estimate the relative measure of the information content of our features, we compare the results of classifications we obtain using them with those obtained by others using the commonly used patch/grid based features. To classify an image using segmentation based features, we model th...
A Trie-structured Bayesian Model for Unsupervised Morphological Segmentation
Kurfalı, Murathan; Ustun, Ahmet; CAN BUĞLALILAR, BURCU (2017-04-23)
In this paper, we introduce a trie-structured Bayesian model for unsupervised morphological segmentation. We adopt prior information from different sources in the model. We use neural word embeddings to discover words that are morphologically derived from each other and thereby that are semantically similar. We use letter successor variety counts obtained from tries that are built by neural word embeddings. Our results show that using different information sources such as neural word embeddings and letter s...
