Southampton has a long history of research in the areas of multimedia information analysis. This talk will focus on some of the recent work we have been involved with in the area of image search. The talk will start by looking at how image content can be represented in ways analogous to textual information and how techniques developed for indexing text can be adapted to images. In particular, the talk will introduce ImageTerrier, a research platform for image retrieval that is built around the University of Glasgow's Terrier text retrieval software. The talk will also cover some of our recent work on image classification and image search result diversification.
