|摘要||Due to the ability of capturing the geometry structure of data manifold, context-sensitive similarity has demonstrated impressive performances in the retrieval task. The key idea of context-sensitive similarity is that the similarity between two data points can be more reliably estimated with the local context of other points in the affinity graph. Therefore, neighborhood selection is a crucial factor for those algorithms, which affects the performance dramatically. In this paper, we propose a new algorithm called Smooth Neighborhood (SN) that mines the neighborhood structure to satisfy the manifold assumption. By doing so, nearby points on the underlying manifold are guaranteed to yield similar neighbors as much as possible. Moreover, SN is adjusted to tackle multiple affinity graphs by imposing a weight learning paradigm, and this is the primary difference compared with related works which are only applicable with one affinity graph. Finally, we integrate SN with Sparse Contextual Activation (SCA), a representative context-sensitive similarity proposed recently. Extensive experimental results and comparisons manifest that with the neighborhood structure generated by SN, the proposed framework can yield state-of-the-art performances on shape retrieval, image retrieval and 3D model retrieval.|
