Distances in Classification
"... Abstract. The notion of distance is the most important basis for classification. This is especially true for unsupervised learning, i.e. clustering, since there is no validation mechanism by means of objects with known groups. But also for supervised learning standard distances often do not lead to ..."

Distance metric learning for large margin nearest neighbor classification
 In NIPS
, 2006
"... We show how to learn a Mahanalobis distance metric for knearest neighbor (kNN) classification by semidefinite programming. The metric is trained with the goal that the knearest neighbors always belong to the same class while examples from different classes are separated by a large margin. On seven ..."

Distance Metric Learning, With Application To Clustering With SideInformation
 ADVANCES IN NEURAL INFORMATION PROCESSING SYSTEMS 15
, 2003
"... Many algorithms rely critically on being given a good metric over their inputs. For instance, data can often be clustered in many "plausible" ways, and if a clustering algorithm such as Kmeans initially fails to find one that is meaningful to a user, the only recourse may be for the us ..."

Distancebased classification with lipschitz functions
 Journal of Machine Learning Research
, 2003
"... The goal of this article is to develop a framework for large margin classification in metric spaces. We want to find a generalization of linear decision functions for metric spaces and define a corresponding notion of margin such that the decision function separates the training points with a large ..."

DistanceBased Classification of Handwritten Symbols
"... Abstract. We study online classification of isolated handwritten symbols using distance measures on spaces of curves. We compare three distancebased measures on a vector space representation of curves to elastic matching and ensembles of SVM. We consider the Euclidean and Manhattan distances and th ..."

Automatic Musical Genre Classification Of Audio Signals
 IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON SPEECH AND AUDIO PROCESSING
, 2002
"... ... describe music. They are commonly used to structure the increasing amounts of music available in digital form on the Web and are important for music information retrieval. Genre categorization for audio has traditionally been performed manually. A particular musical genre is characterized by sta ..."

set of features for representing rhythmic structure and strength is proposed. The performance of those feature sets has been evaluated by training statistical pattern recognition classifiers using real world audio collections. Based on the automatic hierarchical genre classification two graphical user
Local features and kernels for classification of texture and object categories: a comprehensive study
 International Journal of Computer Vision
, 2007
"... Recently, methods based on local image features have shown promise for texture and object recognition tasks. This paper presents a largescale evaluation of an approach that represents images as distributions (signatures or histograms) of features extracted from a sparse set of keypoint locations an ..."

Large Margin Classification Using the Perceptron Algorithm
 Machine Learning
, 1998
"... We introduce and analyze a new algorithm for linear classification which combines Rosenblatt 's perceptron algorithm with Helmbold and Warmuth's leaveoneout method. Like Vapnik 's maximalmargin classifier, our algorithm takes advantage of data that are linearly separable with large ..."

The pyramid match kernel: Discriminative classification with sets of image features
 IN ICCV
, 2005
"... Discriminative learning is challenging when examples are sets of features, and the sets vary in cardinality and lack any sort of meaningful ordering. Kernelbased classification methods can learn complex decision boundaries, but a kernel over unordered set inputs must somehow solve for correspondenc ..."

Methods for voting classification algorithms, such as Bagging and AdaBoost, have been shown to be very successful in improving the accuracy of certain classifiers for artificial and realworld datasets. We review these algorithms and describe a large empirical study comparing several variants in co ..."
