In this paper, we present a novel approach to multi-view gender classification considering both shape and texture information to represent facial image. The face area is divided into small regions, from which local binary pattern(LBP) histograms are extracted and concate-nated into a single vector efficiently representing the facial image. The(More)
In this paper, we propose a new method for decomposing pattern classification problems based on the class relations among training data. By using this method, we can divide a K-class classification problem into a series of ((2)(K)) two-class problems. These two-class problems are to discriminate class Ci from class Cj for i=1, ..., K and j = i+1, while the(More)
Visual dictionary learning and base (binary) classifier training are two basic problems for the recently most popular image cate-gorization framework, which is based on the bag-of-visual-terms (BOV) models and multiclass SVM classifiers. In this paper, we study new algorithms to improve performance of this framework from these two aspects. Typically SVM(More)
In this paper, we use EEG signals to classify two emotions-happiness and sadness. These emotions are evoked by showing subjects pictures of smile and cry facial expressions. We propose a frequency band searching method to choose an optimal band into which the recorded EEG signal is filtered. We use common spatial patterns (CSP) and linear-SVM to classify(More)
Chinese word segmentation is an active area in Chinese language processing though it is suffering from the argument about what precisely is a word in Chinese. Based on corpus-based segmentation standard, we launched this study. In detail, we regard Chinese word segmentation as a character-based tagging problem. We show that there has been a potent trend of(More)
In this paper, we propose a support vector machine with automatic confidence (SVMAC) for pattern classification. The main contributions of this work to learning machines are twofold. One is that we develop an algorithm for calculating the label confidence value of each training sample. Thus, the label confidence values of all of the training samples can be(More)
This paper is concerned with Chinese word segmentation, which is regarded as a character based tagging problem under conditional random field framework. It is different in our method that we consider both feature template selection and tag set selection, instead of feature template focused only method in existing work. Thus, there comes an empirical(More)
Spectral clustering is an elegant and powerful approach for clustering. However, the underlying eigen-decomposition takes cubic time and quadratic space w.r.t. the data set size. These can be reduced by the Nyström method which samples only a subset of columns from the matrix. However, the manipulation and storage of these sampled columns can still be(More)
