Boosting algorithms attract much attention in computer vision and image processing because of their strong performance in a variety of applications. Recent progress on the theory of boosting algorithms suggests a close link between good generalization and the margin distrubtion of the classifier \wrt a dataset. In this paper, we propose a novel data-dependent margin distribution learning criterion for boosting, termed Laplacian MDBoost, which utilizes the intrinsic geometric structure of...[Show more]
