Deep image hashing based on twin-bottleneck hashing with variational autoencoders


With the ever-increasing availability of data, the need for efficient and accurate image retrieval methods has become larger and larger. Deep hashing has proven to be a promising solution, by defining a hash function to convert the data into a manageable lower-dimensional representation. In this paper, we apply recent insights from the field of variational autoencoders to the field of deep image hashing, thus achieving an improvement over the current state of the art as shown by experimental evaluation.
