Manifold-Manifold Distance with application to face recognition based on image set
In this paper, we address the problem of classifying image sets, each of which contains images belonging to the same class but covering large variations in, for instance, viewpoint and illumination. We innovatively formulate the problem as the computation of Manifold-Manifold Distance (MMD), i.e., calculating the distance between nonlinear manifolds each representing one image set. To compute MMD, we also propose a novel manifold learning approach, which expresses a manifold by a collection of local linear models, each depicted by a subspace. MMD is then converted to integrating the distances between pair of subspaces respectively from one of the involved manifolds. The proposed MMD method is evaluated on the task of Face Recognition based on Image Set (FRIS). In FRIS, each known subject is enrolled with a set of facial images and modeled as a gallery manifold, while a testing subject is modeled as a probe manifold, which is then matched against all the gallery manifolds by MMD.
