Abstract

We use kernel Canonical Correlation Analysis to learn a semantic representation of Web images and their associated text. This representation is used in two applications. In first application we consider classification of images into one of three categories. We use SVM in the semantic space and compare against the SVM on raw data and against previously published results using ICA. In the second application we retrieve images based only on their content from a text query. The semantic space provides a common representation and enables a comparison between the text and image. We compare against a standard cross-representation retrieval technique known as the Generalised Vector Space Model
