Several works have been done in the area of image retrieval systems, and many are still trying to provide improvements for a better model for retrieving said images. Image segmentation using clustering techniques is one of the most used approaches. There are various clustering methods available, but the non-linear k-means clustering technique is the most used method. In the following research, a model of retrieving images using a non-linear classifier aided with a convolutional neural network is proposed. Both algorithms were exploited and paired in terms of feature extraction and classification. Comprehensive evaluations over a dataset containing over 7,000 pill images of 1,000 pill types obtained from the National Library of Medicine database demonstrate significant success during the data classification using the proposed model.
