Working Paper

This paper tackles the problem of the user’s incapability to describe exactly the image that he seeks by introducing an innovative image search engine called TsoKaDo. Until now the traditional web image search was based only on the comparison between metadata of the webpage and the user’s textual description. In the method proposed, images from various search engines are classified based on visual content and new tags are proposed to the user. Recursively, the results get closer to the user’s desire. The aim of this paper is to present a new way of searching, especially in case with less query generality, giving greater weight in visual content rather than in metadata.
