Near-duplicate Photo Deduplication in Event Media Shared on Social Networks

by Thomas Steiner, Ruben Verborgh, Joaquim Gabarró Vallés, and Rik Van de Walle

In this paper, we report on the task of near-duplicate photo detection in the context of events that get shared on multiple social networks. When people attend events, they more and more share event-related photos publicly on social networks to let their social network contacts relive and witness the attended events. In the past, we have worked on methods to accumulate such public user-generated multimedia content so that it can be used to summarize events visually in the form of media galleries or slideshows. Therefore, methods for the deduplication of near-duplicate photos of the same event are required in order to ensure the diversity of the generated media galleries or slideshows. First, we introduce the social-network-specific reasons and challenges that cause near-duplicate photos. Second, we introduce an algorithm for the task of deduplicating near-duplicate photos stemming from social networks. Finally, we evaluate the algorithm’s results and shortcomings.
