Abstract

In this paper, we propose an Unsupervised Nonlinear Adaptive Manifold Learning method (UNAML) that considers both global and local information. In this approach, we apply unlabeled training samples to study nonlinear manifold features, while considering global pairwise distances and maintaining local topology structure. Our method aims at minimizing global pairwise data distance errors as well as local structural errors. In order to enable our UNAML to be more efficient and to extract manifold features from the external source of new data, we add a feature approximate error that can be used to learn a linear extractor. Also, we add a feature approximate error that can be used to learn a linear extractor. In addition, we use a method of adaptive neighbor selection to calculate local structural errors. This paper uses the kernel matrix method to optimize the original algorithm. Our algorithm proves to be more effective when compared with the experimental results of other feature extraction methods on real face-data sets and object data sets.
