Existing image retrieval systems exploit textual or/and visual information to return results. Retrieval is mostly focused on data themselves and disregards the data sources. In Web 2.0 platforms, the quality of annotations provided by different users can vary strongly. To account for this variability, we complement existing methods by introducing user tagging credibility in the retrieval process. Tagging credibility is automatically estimated by leveraging a large set of visual concept classifiers learned with Overfeat, a convolutional neural network (CNN) feature. A good image retrieval system should return results that are both relevant and diversified and here we tackle both challenges. Classically, we diversify results by using a k-Means algorithm and increase relevance by favoring images uploaded by users with good credibility estimates. Evaluation is performed on DIV400, a publicly available social image retrieval dataset and shows that our method is competitive with existing approaches.
