Abstract: We propose a novel approach for auto image annotation. In our approach, we first perform the segmentation of images into regions, followed by clustering of regions, before learning the relationship between concepts and region clusters using the set of training images with pre-assigned concepts. The main focus of this paper is two-fold. First, in the learning stage, we perform clustering of regions into region clusters by incorporating pair-wise constraints which are derived by considering the language model underlying the annotations assigned to training images. Second, in the annotation stage, we employ a semi-naïve Bayes model to compute the posterior probability of concepts given the region clusters. Experiment results show that our proposed system utilizing these two strategies outperforms the state-of-the-art techniques in annotating large image collection.
