Synopsis

Visipedia is a joint project between Pietro Perona's Vision Group at Caltech and Serge Belongie's Vision Group at UCSD. Visipedia, short for "Visual Encyclopedia," is an augmented version of Wikipedia, where pictures are first-class citizens alongside text. Goals of Visipedia include creation of hyperlinked, interactive images embedded in Wikipedia articles, scalable representations of visual knowledge, largescale machine vision datasets, and visual search capabilities. Toward achieving these goals, Visipedia advocates interaction and collaboration between machine vision and human users and experts.
