Prototype based classifiers are effective algorithms in modeling classification problems and have been applied in multiple domains. While many supervised learning algorithms have been successfully extended to kernels to improve the discrimination power by means of the kernel concept, prototype based classifiers are typically still used with Euclidean distance measures. Kernelized variants of prototype based classifiers are currently too complex to be applied for larger data sets. Here we…

Gradient Based Learning in Vector Quantization Using Differentiable Kernels

The mathematical justification is given that gradient based learning in prototype-based vector quantization is possible by means of kernel metrics instead of the standard Euclidean distance, and that an appropriate handling requires differentiable universal kernels defining the kernel metric.

Border-sensitive learning in generalized learning vector quantization: an alternative to support vector machines

Two modifications of LVQ are proposed to make it comparable to SVM: first border-sensitive learning is introduced to achieve border-responsible prototypes comparable with support vectors in SVM, and kernel distances for differentiable kernels are considered, such that prototype learning takes place in a metric space isomorphic to the feature mapping space of SVM.

Aspects in Classification Learning - Review of Recent Developments in Learning Vector Quantization
