  • Joint Adaptive Neighbours and Metric Learning for Multi-view Subspace Clustering

    Due to the existence of various views or representations in many real-world data, multi-view learning has drawn much attention recently. Multi-view spectral clustering methods based on similarity matrixes or graphs are pretty popular. Generally, these algorithms learn informative graphs by directly utilizing original data. However, in the real-world applications, original data often contain noises and outliers that lead to unreliable graphs. In addition, different views may have different contributions to data clustering. In this paper, a novel Multiview Subspace Clustering method unifying Adaptive neighbours and Metric learning (MSCAM), is proposed to address the above problems. In this method, we use the subspace representations of different views to adaptively learn a consensus similarity matrix, uncovering the subspace structure and avoiding noisy nature of original data. For all views, we also learn different Mahalanobis matrixes that parameterize the squared distances and consider the contributions of different views. Further, we constrain the graph constructed by the similarity matrix to have exact c (c is the number of clusters) connected components. An iterative algorithm is developed to solve this optimization problem. Moreover, experiments on a synthetic dataset and different real-world datasets demonstrate the effectiveness of MSCAM.

  • A Survey to Deep Facial Attribute Analysis

    Facial attribute analysis has received considerable attention with the development of deep neural networks in the past few years. Facial attribute analysis contains two crucial issues: Facial Attribute Estimation (FAE), which recognizes whether facial attributes are present in given images, and Facial Attribute Manipulation (FAM), which synthesizes or removes desired facial attributes. In this paper, we provide a comprehensive survey on deep facial attribute analysis covering FAE and FAM. First, we present the basic knowledge of the two stages (i.e., data pre-processing and model construction) in the general deep facial attribute analysis pipeline. Second, we summarize the commonly used datasets and performance metrics. Third, we create a taxonomy of the state-of-the-arts and review detailed algorithms in FAE and FAM, respectively. Furthermore, we introduce several additional facial attribute related issues and applications. Finally, the possible challenges and future research directions are discussed.
