Adaptive Discriminative Generative Model and Its Applications

Neural Information Processing Systems

This paper presents an adaptive discriminative generative model that generalizes theconventional Fisher Linear Discriminant algorithm and renders a proper probabilistic interpretation. Within the context of object tracking, we aim to find a discriminative generative model that best separates thetarget from the background. We present a computationally efficient algorithm to constantly update this discriminative model as time progresses. While most tracking algorithms operate on the premise that the object appearance or ambient lighting condition does not significantly change as time progresses, our method adapts a discriminative generative modelto reflect appearance variation of the target and background, thereby facilitating the tracking task in ever-changing environments. Numerous experimentsshow that our method is able to learn a discriminative generative model for tracking target objects undergoing large pose and lighting changes.

Exponential Family Hybrid Semi-Supervised Learning

AAAI Conferences

We present an approach to semi-supervised learning based on an exponential family characterization. Our approach generalizes previous work on coupled priors for hybrid generative/discriminative models. Our model is more flexible and natural than previous approaches. Experimental results on several data sets show that our approach also performs better in practice. 


OpenIAS Hybrid Generative-Discriminative Deep Models

@machinelearnbot

Deep discriminative classifiers perform remarkably well on problems with a lot of labeled data. So-called deep generative models tend to excel when labeled training data is scarce. Can we do a hybrid, combining the best of both worlds? In this post I outline a hybrid generative-discriminative deep model loosely based on the importance weighted autoencoder (Burda et al., 2015). Don't miss the pretty pictures.
