Summarised Presentation of Personal Photo Sets

Nuno Datia, João Moura Pires, Nuno Correia: Summarised Presentation of Personal Photo Sets.

Abstract

People produce an increasing amount of digital photos to document events. Searching for a specific event can result in more photos than people can handle, making difficult judging their relevance. This paper presents a new algorithm, that summarises a set of photos described by attributes at different concept levels. It addresses the well-known human weakness to deal with large collections of distinct items, by presenting a low cardinality partition set. Each group yields a compact, yet distinct, description. The evaluation, including user tests, shows the algorithm outperforms others in context separation and informative power about the set being summarised.
