Stéphanie LOPEZ - phD Student - VIsual Seek of Interactive Image Retrival (VISIIR)

My phD is part of an ANR project, VISIIR http://visiir.univ-lr.fr/. It deals with Content Based Image Retrieval (CBIR) applied to food recipe images. This theme gets important giving the trend of cooking tv shows and various applications to evaluate restaurants online. When it is time to impress your friends with your cooking skills, you are looking for tremendous and original recipes. This appears to be quite subjective, and semantic annotation could not be of real help. Our hypothesis lies in the idea that the gaze contains enough information to overcome the subjectivity and can replace mouse click selection.

Key words: Eye tracking, Machine Learning, Image annotation
