Subspace methods for learning and recognition

We often face high-dimensional data when modelling real world phenomena, especially when modelling visual data. However, usually these high-dimensional data lie in a much lower-dimensional space. Since low-dimensional data is significantly more convenient and efficient to handle, many methods exist that map high-dimensional data into a low-dimensional subspace, preserving certain properties of the original data. We will discuss several standard subspace methods, such as Principal component analysis, Linear Discriminant Analysis, and Canonical Correlation Analysis. We will derive these methods, and learn when and how to use them. We will also discuss how to extend the standard methods into incremental and robust versions that are more appropriate to use in real world scenarios. More information->
