Babenko et al. apply convolutional neural networks to image retrieval. In particular, the architecture proposed by Krizhevsky et al. [1] (shown in Figure 1), has been used to compute features for image retrieval. They experimented with different layers, dimensionality reduction techniques (e.g. PCA and Large-Margin Dimensionality Reduction [2]), and both the pre-trained model and a refined model to demonstrate state-of-the-art performance on many image retrieval datasets.
