Title: Frozen Dictionary Learning for Classification
State-of-the-art machine learning classification algorithms are changing our lives, from how we search the web to how we go shopping, and we are always seeking improvements. My work focuses on improving classification via intelligent feature extraction -- a machine learning classifier is only as good as the data that gets fed into it! In this talk, I will introduce sparse coding dictionary learning in the framework of machine learning. I will also discuss modifications to the dictionary learning process that give the learned features more discriminative power.
