clothing image, kansei retrieval

This study proposes a clothing-image retrieval system that considers a user’s kansei, i.e., the user’s emotional, physical, and aesthetical preferences. The system gradually learns the user’s kansei by repeated interaction with the user, and can then search for corresponding clothing images. The practicality of the proposed system is confirmed in experiments with real users. It is found that the proposed system can retrieve clothing images that corresponded to the user’s kansei.
