Abstract

This paper presents a novel weighted sparse representation classification for face recognition with a learned distance metric (WSRC-LDM) which learns a Mahalanobis distance to calculate the weight and code the testing face. The Mahalanobis distance is learned by using the information-theoretic metric learning (ITML) which helps to define a better weight used in WSRC. In the meantime, the learned distance metric takes advantage of the classification rule of SRC which helps the proposed method classify more accurately. Extensive experiments verify the effectiveness of the proposed method.
