Relatively-Paired Space Analysis

Relatively-Paired Space Analysis

This video was recorded at British Machine Vision Conference (BMVC), Bristol 2013. Discovering a latent common space between different modalities plays an important role in cross-modality pattern recognition. Existing techniques often require absolutelypaired observations as training data, and are incapable of capturing more general semantic relationships between cross-modality observations. This greatly limits their applications. In this paper, we propose a general framework for learning a latent common space from relatively-paired observations (i.e., two observations from different modalities are more-likely-paired than another two). Relative-pairing information is encoded using relative proximities of observations in the latent common space. By building a discriminative model and maximizing a distance margin, a projection function that maps observations into the latent common space is learned for each modality. Cross-modality pattern recognition can then be carried out in the latent common space. To evaluate its performance, the proposed framework has been applied to cross-pose face recognition and feature fusion. Experimental results demonstrate that the proposed framework outperforms other state-of-the-art approaches.
