Semantics and feature discovery via confidence-based ensemble
Kingshy Goh, Beitao Li, Edward Y. Chang
Pages: 168-189
DOI: 10.1145/1062253.1062257
Providing accurate and scalable solutions to map low-level perceptual features to high-level semantics is essential for multimedia information organization and retrieval. In this paper, we propose a confidence-based dynamic ensemble (CDE) to overcome...
