This beautifully produced book is intended for advanced undergraduates, PhD students, and researchers and practitioners, primarily in machine learning or allied areas. The theoretical framework is, as far as possible, that of Bayesian decision theory, taking advantage of the computational tools now available for practical implementation of such methods.(More)
—A new sparsity-based algorithm for the classification of hyperspectral imagery is proposed in this paper. The proposed algorithm relies on the observation that a hyperspectral pixel can be sparsely represented by a linear combination of a few training samples from a structured dictionary. The sparse representation of an unknown pixel is expressed as a(More)
In this paper, we present dictionary learning methods for sparse signal representations in a high dimensional feature space. Using the kernel method, we describe how the well known dictionary learning approaches, such as the method of optimal directions and KSVD, can be made nonlinear. We analyze their kernel constructions and demonstrate their(More)
Traditional biometric recognition systems rely on a single biometric signature for authentication. While the advantage of using multiple sources of information for establishing the identity has been widely recognized, computational models for multimodal biometrics recognition have only recently received attention. We propose a multimodal sparse(More)
In this paper, we propose a new sparsity-based algorithm for automatic target detection in hyperspectral imagery (HSI). This algorithm is based on the concept that a pixel in HSI lies in a low-dimensional subspace and thus can be represented as a sparse linear combination of the training samples. The sparse representation (a sparse vector corresponding to(More)
In this paper, we present dictionary learning methods for sparse and redundant signal representations in high dimensional feature space. Using the kernel method, we describe how the well-known dictionary learning approaches such as the method of optimal directions and K-SVD can be made nonlinear. We analyze these constructions and demonstrate their improved(More)
The channel assignment problem has become increasingly important in mobile telephone communication. Since the usable range of the frequency spectrum is limited, the optimal assignment problem of channels has become increasingly important. Recently Genetic Algorithms (GAs) have been proposed as new computational tools for solving optimization problems. GAs(More)
Advances in residual vector quantization (RVQ) are surveyed. Definitions of joint encoder optimality and joint decoder optimality are discussed. Design techniques for RVQs with large numbers of stages and generally different encoder and decoder codebooks are elaborated and extended. Fixed-rate RVQs, and variable-rate RVQs that employ entropy coding are(More)
Most previous visual recognition systems simply assume ideal inputs without real-world degradations, such as low resolution, motion blur and out-of-focus blur. In presence of such unknown degradations, the conventional approach first resorts to blind image restoration and then feeds the restored image into a classifier. Treating restoration and recognition(More)
