For many machine learning algorithms such as k-nearest neighbor ( k-NN) classifiers and k-means clustering, often their success heavily depends on the metric used to calculate distances between different data points. An effective solution for defining such a metric is to learn it from a set of labeled training samples. In this work, we propose a fast and scalable algorithm to learn a Mahalanobis distance metric. The Mahalanobis metric can be viewed as the Euclidean distance metric on the input...[Show more]
