Author(s): Selvapriya B, Raghu B
Abstract: Image feature extraction and representation is a crucial step for multimedia processing. How to extract ideal features that can reflect the intrinsic content of the images as complete as possible is still a challenging problem in computer vision. However, very little research has paid attention to this problem in the last decades. So in this paper, we focus our review on the latest development in image feature extraction and provide a comprehensive survey on image feature representation techniques. In particular, we analyze the effectiveness of the fusion of global and local features in automatic image annotation and content based image retrieval community, including some classic models and their illustrations in the literature. Finally, we summarize this paper with some important conclusions and point out the future potential research directions.
