In this chapter, one of the most popular and intuitive prototype-based classification algorithms, learning vector quantization (LVQ), is revisited, and recent extensions towards automatic metric adaptation are introduced. Metric adaptation schemes extend LVQ in two aspects: on the one hand a greater flexibility is achieved since the metric which is essential for the classification is adapted according to the given classification task at hand. On the other hand a better interpretability of the… CONTINUE READING
