Combining indexing and learning in iterative refinement


A simultaneous learning and indexing technique is proposed for efficient content-based retrieval of images that can be described by feature vectors. This technique builds a compact high-dimensional index while taking into account that the raw feature space needs to be adjusted for each new application. With this technique, much better efficiency can be achieved as compared to those techniques that do not make provisions for efficient indexing.
