Efficient and scalable approaches to Mahalanobis distance metric learning

Kim, Junae


The development of an appropriate data-dependent distance metric is a compelling goal for many visual recognition tasks. This thesis proposes three efficient and scalable distance learning algorithms by employing the principle of margin maximization to secure better generalization performances. The proposed algorithms formulate metric learning as a convex optimization problem with a positive semidefinite (psd) matrix variable. A standard interior-point semidefinite programming (SDP) solver has...[Show more]
