Speech Title: Tensor Representation Learning for Pattern Recognition and Data Mining
Abstract: In nature, many types of data in real world applications can be represented in the form of tensors. To simulate the human perceptual systems, we exploit models for tensor representation learning. Three novel models will be presented in this talk. They are large margin low rank tensor analysis (LMLRTA), tensor representation learning based image patch analysis (TRL-IPA), and low rank tensor learning with discriminant analysis (LRTLDA). Their applications to face recognition, object classification, ancient document understanding and action classification are tested. Extensive experiments with comparison against state-of-the-art approaches demonstrate the effectiveness of the new models.
