SIMPLIcity ALIP   :   Automatic Linguistic Indexing of Pictures

The ALIP system selects among 600 trained concepts to annotate images automatically. We show annotation results here. The research has been started when J. Wang and J. Li were with Stanford and is continued at Penn State. An on-line real-time image annotation demonstration is expected to be developed and made available in the future. At that time, you will be able to submit your own images for automatic annotation. For now, we provide some automatic annotation examples.
