  • Patent number: 10885379
    Abstract: This disclosure relates to improved techniques for performing multi-view image clustering. The techniques described herein utilize machine learning functions to optimize the image clustering process. Multi-view features are extracted from a collection of images. A machine learning function is configured to jointly learn a fused binary representation that combines the multi-view features and one or more binary cluster structures that can be used to partition the images. A clustering function utilizes the fused binary representation and the one or more binary cluster structures to generate one or more image clusters based on the collection of images.

  • Publication number: 20200073968
    Abstract: This disclosure relates to improved sketch-based image retrieval (SBIR) techniques. The SBIR techniques utilize a neural network architecture to train a domain migration function and a hashing function. The domain migration function is configured to transform sketches into synthetic images, and the hashing function is configured to generate hash codes from synthetic images and authentic images in a manner that preserves semantic consistency across the sketch and image domains. The hash codes generated from the synthetic images can be used for accurately identifying and retrieving authentic images corresponding to sketch queries, or vice versa.
