Spectral clustering and eigenvector-based methods have become increasingly popular in segmentation and recognition. Although the choice of the pairwise similarity metric (or affinities) greatly influences the quality of the results, this choice is typically specified outside the learning framework. In this paper, we present an algorithm to learn class-specific similarity functions. Mapping our problem in a conditional random fields (CRF) framework enables us to pose the task of learning… CONTINUE READING
