Abstract: Considering the drawbacks of the linear local tangent space alignment, a Semi-Supervised Neighbourhood Adaptive Linear Local Tangent Space Alignment (SSNA-LLTSA) is proposed. The distance metric combining the Cosine similarity and the Euclidean distance is used in the algorithm instead of the Euclidean distance, and the algorithm realises the semi-supervised learning and neighbourhood adaptive adjustment by integrating some of the known category information and the method of Parzen window density estimation into the dimensionality reduction process. The simulation experiment of UCI standard data sets and the pattern recognition example of hydraulic pump show that the redefined distance metric has better performance than the Euclidean distance, and SSNA-LLTSA can overcome the defect that LLTSA is unsupervised. Meanwhile, the capability of neighbourhood adaptive adjustment makes the algorithm find the low-dimensional manifold of the data sets more effectively, which can further improve the accuracy of pattern recognition.

Keywords: pattern recognition; dimensionality reduction; semi-supervised learning; neighbourhood adaptive; LLTSA.
