Ridge Regression for Two Dimensional Locality Preserving Projection
MetadataShow full item record
Two Dimensional Locality Preserving Projection (2D-LPP) is a recent extension of LPP, a popular face recognition algorithm. It has been shown that 2D-LPP performs better than PCA, 2D-PCA and LPP. However, the computational cost of 2D-LPP is high. This paper proposes a novel algorithm called Ridge Regression for Two Dimensional Locality Preserving Projection (RR-2DLPP), which is an extension of 2D-LPP with the use of ridge regression. RR-2DLPP is comparable to 2D-LPP in performance whilst having a lower computational cost. The experimental results on three benchmark face data sets - the ORL, Yale and FERET databases - demonstrate the effectiveness and efficiency of RR-2DLPP compared with other face recognition algorithms such as PCA, LPP, SR, 2D-PCA and 2D-LPP.
