"The MIR Flickr Retrieval Evaluation" made it to the top 10 of most cited publications in the history of ACM's Special Interest Group on Multimedia. In 2008 the MIR Flickr dataset was the first completely and consistently annotated large image dataset which was also freely redistributable. It set the future trends in image search evaluation, test sets and training. Dr. Michael Lew's paper is one of the 11.000 publications in the field of multimedia analysis, understanding and retrieval.
