Review on integration of ontology and deep learning in cultural heritage image retrieval

Fikri Budiman, Edi Sugiarto, Novi Hendriyanto


Image retrieval methods are currently developing towards big data processing. The literature review is focused on image big data extraction with cultural heritage domain as training and testing datasets. The development of image retrieval process starts from content-based using machine algorithms, deep learning to ontology-based. Image recognition research with cultural heritage domain is conducted because of the importance of preserving and appreciating cultural heritage, in this case, cultural heritage images such as Indonesian Batik are discussed. Batik motif images are Indonesian cultural heritage that has thousands of motifs that are grouped into many classes with a non-linear hyperplane. The problem is focused on processing big data that has many classes. Currently research is evolving into knowledge-based image retrieval using ontologies due to semantic gap constraints. The results of this literature study can be the basis for developing research on the application of appropriate deep learning algorithms so as to utilize the hierarchy of classes and subclasses of image ontologies with cultural heritage domains.
