Abstract: Feature extraction is one of the most important problems in image recognition tasks. In many applications such as face recognition, it is desirable to eliminate the redundancy among the extracted discriminant features. In this paper, we propose two novel feature extraction approaches named local uncorrelated discriminant transform (LUDT) and weighted global uncorrelated discriminant transform (WGUDT) for face recognition, respectively. LUDT and WGUDT separately construct the local uncorrelated constraints and the weighted global uncorrelated constraints. Then they iteratively calculate the optimal discriminant vectors that maximize the Fisher criterion under the corresponding statistical uncorrelated constraints, respectively. The proposed LUDT and WGUDT approaches are evaluated on the public AR and FERET face databases. Experimental results demonstrate that the proposed approaches outperform several representative feature extraction methods.
