CLUSTERING SEARCH RESULTS BASED ON IMAGE COMPOSITION (#20180189325)

http://appft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PG01&s1=20180189325&OS=20180189325&RS=20180189325

Note, this patent is still in the pending state.

Various aspects of the subject technology relate to systems, methods, and machine-readable media for clustering search results based on image composition. A system may, for each image in a set of images, determine a compositional vector representing one or more objects and corresponding locations within the image using a trained computer-operated convolutional neural network. The system may provide each image through a clustering algorithm to produce one or more clusters based on compositional similarity. The system may provide images from the set of images clustered by composition, in which the images include a different listing of images for each of the one or more clusters. The system may provide a prioritized listing of images responsive to a user search query, in which the prioritized listing of images includes a different listing of images for each cluster of compositional similarity based on the metadata of each image associated with the cluster.
