Visual Semantic Search: Retrieving Videos via Complex Textual Queries

CVPR 2014  ·  Dahua Lin, Sanja Fidler, Chen Kong, Raquel Urtasun ·

In this paper, we tackle the problem of retrieving videos using complex natural language queries. Towards this goal, we first parse the sentential descriptions into a semantic graph, which is then matched to visual concepts using a generalized bipartite matching algorithm. Our approach exploits object appearance, motion and spatial relations, and learns the importance of each term using structure prediction. We demonstrate the effectiveness of our approach on a new dataset designed for semantic search in the context of autonomous driving, which exhibits complex and highly dynamic scenes with many objects. We show that our approach is able to locate a major portion of the objects described in the query with high accuracy, and improve the relevance in video retrieval.
