On the Invariance of Dictionary Learning and Sparse Representation to Projecting Data to a Discriminative Space

03/06/2015 ∙ by Mehrdad J. Gangeh, et al. ∙ 0

In this paper, it is proved that dictionary learning and sparse representation is invariant to a linear transformation. It subsumes the special case of transforming/projecting the data into a discriminative space. This is important because recently, supervised dictionary learning algorithms have been proposed, which suggest to include the category information into the learning of dictionary to improve its discriminative power. Among them, there are some approaches that propose to learn the dictionary in a discriminative projected space. To this end, two approaches have been proposed: first, assigning the discriminative basis as the dictionary and second, perform dictionary learning in the projected space. Based on the invariance of dictionary learning to any transformation in general, and to a discriminative space in particular, we advocate the first approach.
