Supervised classification is one of the most powerful techniques to analyze data, when a-priori information is available on the membership of data samples to classes. Since the labeling process can be both expensive and time-consuming, it is interesting to investigate semi-supervised algorithms that can produce classification models taking advantage of unlabeled samples. In this paper we propose LapReGEC, a novel technique that introduces a Laplacian regularization term in a generalized eigenvalue classifier. As a result, we produce models that are both accurate and parsimonious in terms of needed labeled data. We empirically prove that the obtained classifier well compares with other techniques, using as little as 5% of labeled points to compute the models.

Abstract

Supervised classification is one of the most powerful techniques to analyze data, when a-priori information is available on the membership of data samples to classes. Since the labeling process can be both expensive and time-consuming, it is interesting to investigate semi-supervised algorithms that can produce classification models taking advantage of unlabeled samples. In this paper we propose LapReGEC, a novel technique that introduces a Laplacian regularization term in a generalized eigenvalue classifier. As a result, we produce models that are both accurate and parsimonious in terms of needed labeled data. We empirically prove that the obtained classifier well compares with other techniques, using as little as 5% of labeled points to compute the models.
