A Light-weight Relevance Feedback Solution for Large Scale Content-Based Video Retrieval

Zimian Li and Ming Zhu

This paper addresses the problem of large scale content-based video retrieval with relevance feedback. We analyze the common methods which leverage local feature detectors to extract feature descriptors from video collections and perform multi-level matching after indexing and retrieval of feature vectors. Instead of learning similarity-preserving codes, we introduce the relevance feedback approach in a light-weight way. A relevance model is proposed to merge semantic similarity with the original distance matching at descriptor level. By learning several weights using canonical correlation analysis (CCA), the resulting candidate list of similar videos changes according to relevance feedback. Finally, we demonstrate the improvement of the proposed method by experiments on a standard real world dataset.

Keywords: Content-based Video Retrieval, Relevance Feedback, CCA
