In pattern recognition, support vector machines (SVM) as a discriminative classifier and Gaussian mixture model as a generative model classifier are two most popular techniques. Current state-of-the-art systems try to combine them together for achieving more power of classification and improving the performance of the recognition systems. Most of recent works focus on probabilistic SVM/GMM hybrid methods but this paper presents a novel method for SVM/GMM hybrid pattern classification based on training data selection. This system uses the output of the Gaussian mixture model to choose training data for SVM classifier. Results on databases are provided to demonstrate the effectiveness of this system. We are able to achieve better error-rates that are better than the current systems.

    ABSTRACT: Location awareness is of primary importance in a wealth of applications such as transportation, mobile health systems, augmented reality and navigation. For example, in busy transportation areas (such as airports) providing clear, personalised notifications and directions, can reduce delays and improve the passenger journeys. Currently some applications provide easy access to information. These travel related applications can become context aware via the availability of accurate indoor/outdoor positioning. However, there are barriers that still have to overcome. One such barrier is the time required to set up and calibrate indoor positioning systems, another is the challenge of scalability with regard to the processing requirements of indoor positioning algorithms. This paper investigates the relationship between the calibration data and positioning system accuracy and analyses the performance of a k-Nearest Neighbour (k-NN) based positioning algorithm using real GSM data. Furthermore, the paper proposes a positioning scheme based on Gaussian Mixture Models (GMM). Experimental results show that the proposed GMM algorithm (without post-filtering) provides high levels of localization accuracy and successfully copes with the scalability problems that the conventional k-NN approach faces.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper we explain a fully automatic system for airplane detection and tracking based on wavelet transform and Support Vector Machine (SVM). By using 50 airplane images in different situations, models are developed to recognize airplane in the first frame of a video sequence. To train a SVM classifier for classifying pixels belong to objects and background pixels, vectors of features are built. The learned model can be used to detect the airplane in the original video and in the novel images. For original video, the system can be considered as a generalized tracker and for novel images it can be interpreted as method for learning models for object recognition. After airplane detection in the first frame, the feature vectors of this frame are used to train the SVM classifier. For new video frame, SVM is applied to test the pixels and form a confidence map. The 4th level of Daubechies's wavelet coefficients corresponding to input image are used as features. Conducting simulations, it is demonstrated that airplane detection and tracking based on wavelet transform and SVM classification result in acceptable and efficient performance. The experimental results agree with the theoretical results.

    ABSTRACT: Choose of training samples is an important topic for the support vector machines applied research. This paper proposes a new image segmentation method: the two-dimensional histogram of the segmented image is used to guide to select training samples to train the classical support vector machines. First of all, calculate the two-dimensional histogram of the segmented image and then get its two thresholds by the rough estimation which proposes in the paper; then, according to these two thresholds to find the range to choices the training samples; finally, choose the appropriate number of training samples in the certain range to train support vector machines. The method have better results whether in visual or in quantitative analysis.
