Over the past few decades multimedia content, particularly digital images, has increased at a rapid pace, with several complex images being uploaded to various social websites such as Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. Therefore, it is difficult to search and retrieve the relevant image in seconds. Search engines retrieve images based on traditional textbased methods that depend on metadata and captions. In the last few years, a wide range of research has focused on content-based image retrieval (CBIR) based on image mining approaches. This is a challenging research area due to the ever-increasing multimedia database and other image libraries. In order to offer an effective search and retrieval, a novel CBIR system is proposed using the image mining-based deep belief neural network (IMDBN) technique. The proposed method is designed to enhance retrieval accuracy while diminishing the semantic gap between human visual understanding and image feature representation. To achieve this objective, the proposed system carries several steps like preprocessing, feature extraction, classification, and feature matching. Initially, the input database images are fed into the proposed image mining-based CBIR system, whereas colour-shape-texture (CST) feature extraction technique is applied to extract relevant feature set. The extracted features are fused and stored in the feature vector and are
subjected to the proposed IMDBN classification step to retrieve similar images in one label. Whenever a new query content is created, the most relevant images are retrieved. This, in turn, achieves 94% accuracy, which is higher than in existing approaches.
