Hamming Distance Metric Learning
"... Motivated by largescale multimedia applications we propose to learn mappings from highdimensional data to binary codes that preserve semantic similarity. Binary codes are well suited to largescale applications as they are storage efficient and permit exact sublinear kNN search. The framework is ..."

Distance metric learning, with application to clustering with sideinformation,”
 in Advances in Neural Information Processing Systems 15,
, 2002
"... Abstract 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 ..."

to provide examples. In this paper, we present an algorithm that, given examples of similar (and, if desired, dissimilar) pairs of points in Ê Ò , learns a distance metric over Ê Ò that respects these relationships. Our method is based on posing metric learning as a convex optimization problem, which allows
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 ..."

Examplebased learning for viewbased human face detection
 IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence
, 1998
"... Abstract—We present an examplebased learning approach for locating vertical frontal views of human faces in complex scenes. The technique models the distribution of human face patterns by means of a few viewbased “face ” and “nonface ” model clusters. At each image location, a difference feature v ..."

vector is computed between the local image pattern and the distributionbased model. A trained classifier determines, based on the difference feature vector measurements, whether or not a human face exists at the current image location. We show empirically that the distance metric we adopt
Features of similarity.
 Psychological Review
, 1977
"... Similarity plays a fundamental role in theories of knowledge and behavior. It serves as an organizing principle by which individuals classify objects, form concepts, and make generalizations. Indeed, the concept of similarity is ubiquitous in psychological theory. It underlies the accounts of stimu ..."

. These models represent objects as points in some coordinate space such that the observed dissimilarities between objects correspond to the metric distances between the respective points. Practically all analyses of proximity data have been metric in nature, although some (e.g., hierarchical clustering) yield
Informationtheoretic metric learning

, 2007
"... We formulate the metric learning problem as that of minimizing the differential relative entropy between two multivariate Gaussians under constraints on the Mahalanobis distance function. Via a surprising equivalence, we show that this problem can be solved as a lowrank kernel learning problem. Spe ..."

Automatic Programming of Behaviorbased Robots using Reinforcement Learning
, 1991
"... This paper describes a general approach for automatically programming a behaviorbased robot. New behaviors are learned by trial and error using a performance feedback function as reinforcement. Two algorithms for behavior learning are described that combine Q learning, a well known scheme for propa ..."

A real behaviorbased robot called OBELIX is described that learns several component behaviors in an example task involving
Improved heterogeneous distance functions
 Journal of Artificial Intelligence Research
, 1997
"... Instancebased learning techniques typically handle continuous and linear input values well, but often do not handle nominal input attributes appropriately. The Value Difference Metric (VDM) was designed to find reasonable distance values between nominal attribute values, but it largely ignores cont ..."

Our method relies on the simple geometric intuition that a good metric is one under which points in the same class are simultaneously near each other and far from points in th ..."
