Sparse representations in multi-kernel dictionaries for in-situ classification of underwater objects
MetadataShow full item record
The performance of the kernel-based pattern classification algorithms depends highly on the selection of the kernel function and its parameters. Consequently in the recent years there has been a growing interest in machine learning algorithms to select kernel functions automatically from a predefined dictionary of kernels. In this work we develop a general mathematical framework for multi-kernel classification that makes use of sparse representation theory for automatically selecting the kernel functions and their parameters that best represent a set of training samples. We construct a dictionary ...
