In this chapter, a novel semi-supervised dimensionality reduction algorithm
is proposed, namely Sparsity Preserving Projection based Constrained Graph
Embedding (SPP-CGE). Sparsity Preserving Projection (SPP) is an unsupervised
dimensionality reduction method. It aims to preserve the sparse reconstructive
relationship of the data obtained by solving a L1 objective function. Label information
is used as additional constraints for graph embedding in the SPP-CGE algorithm. In
SPP-CGE, both the intrinsic structure and the label information of the data are used. In
addition, to deal with new incoming samples, out-of-sample extension of SPP-CGE is
also proposed. Promising experimental results on several popular face databases
illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed method.
