Nearest neighbor classification from multiple feature subsets
 Intelligent Data Analysis
, 1999
"... Combining multiple classifiers is an effective technique for improving accuracy. There are many general combining algorithms, such as Bagging, Boosting, or Error Correcting Output Coding, that significantly improve classifiers like decision trees, rule learners, or neural networks. Unfortunately, th ..."

, these combining methods do not improve the nearest neighbor classifier. In this paper, we present MFS, a combining algorithm designed to improve the accuracy of the nearest neighbor (NN) classifier. MFS combines multiple NN classifiers each using only a random subset of features. The experimental results
Wrappers for Feature Subset Selection
 AIJ SPECIAL ISSUE ON RELEVANCE
, 1997
"... In the feature subset selection problem, a learning algorithm is faced with the problem of selecting a relevant subset of features upon which to focus its attention, while ignoring the rest. To achieve the best possible performance with a particular learning algorithm on a particular training set, a ..."

Coordination of Groups of Mobile Autonomous Agents Using Nearest Neighbor Rules
, 2002
"... In a recent Physical Review Letters paper, Vicsek et. al. propose a simple but compelling discretetime model of n autonomous agents fi.e., points or particlesg all moving in the plane with the same speed but with dierent headings. Each agent's heading is updated using a local rule based on ..."

on the average of its own heading plus the headings of its \neighbors." In their paper, Vicsek et. al. provide simulation results which demonstrate that the nearest neighbor rule they are studying can cause all agents to eventually move in the same direction despite the absence of centralized
Irrelevant Features and the Subset Selection Problem
 MACHINE LEARNING: PROCEEDINGS OF THE ELEVENTH INTERNATIONAL
, 1994
"... We address the problem of finding a subset of features that allows a supervised induction algorithm to induce small highaccuracy concepts. We examine notions of relevance and irrelevance, and show that the definitions used in the machine learning literature do not adequately partition the features ..."

Discriminant Adaptive Nearest Neighbor Classification
, 1994
"... Nearest neighbor classification expects the class conditional probabilities to be locally constant, and suffers from bias in high dimensions. We propose a locally adaptive form of nearest neighbor classification to try to ameliorate this curse of dimensionality. We use a local linear discriminant an ..."

Fast approximate nearest neighbors with automatic algorithm configuration
 In VISAPP International Conference on Computer Vision Theory and Applications
, 2009
"... nearestneighbors search, randomized kdtrees, hierarchical kmeans tree, clustering. For many computer vision problems, the most time consuming component consists of nearest neighbor matching in highdimensional spaces. There are no known exact algorithms for solving these highdimensional problems ..."

Svmknn: Discriminative nearest neighbor classification for visual category recognition
 in CVPR
, 2006
"... We consider visual category recognition in the framework of measuring similarities, or equivalently perceptual distances, to prototype examples of categories. This approach is quite flexible, and permits recognition based on color, texture, and particularly shape, in a homogeneous framework. While n ..."

nearest neighbor classifiers are natural in this setting, they suffer from the problem of high variance (in biasvariance decomposition) in the case of limited sampling. Alternatively, one could use support vector machines but they involve timeconsuming optimization and computation of pairwise distances
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 ..."

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 ..."
