An Experimental Study on the Performance of Visual Information Retrieval Similarity Models

By Horst Eidenberger and Christian Breiteneder

Abstract

This paper is an experimental study on the performance of the two major methods for macro-level similarity measurement: linear weighted merging and logical retrieval. Performance is measured as the average query execution time for a significant number of tests. The two models were implemented in the standard version (as they are applied in a number of prototypes) and in an optimized version. The results show, that optimized logical retrieval clearly outperforms optimized linear weighted merging.
