We discuss artificial computer-based KANSEI and its application in a media database retrieval system. In our three-step approach, we first design a psychological space in which human impressions of images, movies, or music are expressed as coordinates. Second, we determine the mapping relationship between the psychological space and physical media features. And third, we retrieve media from the database or convert media into other media through the psychological space. We then construct a universal space to express several impressions of different media using the SD method. As an application, we evaluate an interactive EC-based image retrieval method using this space.
