Reduced-Rank Local Distance Metric Learning [chapter]

Yinjie Huang, Cong Li, Michael Georgiopoulos, Georgios C. Anagnostopoulos
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We propose a new method for local metric learning based on a conical combination of Mahalanobis metrics and pair-wise similarities between the data.  ...  Its formulation allows for controlling the rank of the metrics' weight matrices. We also offer a convergent algorithm for training the associated model.  ...  Conclusions In this paper, we proposed a new local metric learning model, namely Reduced-Rank Local Metric Learning (R 2 LML).  ...

Locally Linear Embedding based on Rank-order Distance

Xili Sun, Yonggang Lu
2016 Proceedings of the 5th International Conference on Pattern Recognition Applications and Methods  
In this paper, the Rank-order distance measure is used to substitute the traditional Euclidean distance measure in order to find better nearest neighbor candidates for preserving local configurations of  ...  The Rank-order distance between the data points is calculated using their neighbors' ranking orders, and is shown to be able to improve the clustering of high dimensional data.  ...  It is also shown that the Rank-order distance can find better neighbors than the Euclidean distance and the geodesic distance for representing local configurations of the manifolds.  ...

Handling shape variations in geographical distance rankings for local news recommendation

Jon Espen Ingvaldsen, Dirk Ahlers

Geonu KIM, Jungwoo LEE
2019 IEICE Transactions on Fundamentals of Electronics Communications and Computer Sciences  
Its distance optimality has been further shown to cover the case of multiple (r, δ)-locality, where the (r, δ)-locality constraints are different among different symbols.  ...  In this letter, we show that Gabidulin-based LRCs are still distance optimal even without the ordered (r, δ) condition. key words: locally repairable codes, multiple locality, local erasure correction,  ...  Theorem 1 : 1 Gabidulin-based (r, δ)-LRCs are distance optimal LRCs with multiple (r, δ)-locality.  ...

Locally Repairable Codes with Unequal Local Erasure Correction

Geonu Kim, Jungwoo Lee
2018 IEEE Transactions on Information Theory  
In this paper, we study the tradeoff between locality and minimum distance of LRCs with local codes that have arbitrary distance requirements.  ...  Locally repairable codes (LRCs) tackle this issue by reducing the number of nodes participating in the repair process (locality), at the cost of reduced minimum distance.  ...  It is easy to see that the rank distance is upper bounded by the Hamming distance, i.e., d R (u, v) ≤ d H (u, v).  ...

Codes with Unequal Locality [article]

Swanand Kadhe, Alex Sprintson
2016 arXiv   pre-print
We show that the construction based on rank-metric codes by Silberstein et al. can be adapted to obtain codes with unequal all symbol locality that achieve the minimum distance bound.  ...  For codes with "unequal information locality", we compute a tight upper bound on the minimum distance as a function of number of information symbols of each locality.  ...  discussions, especially on locality requirement.  ...

We also derive a Singleton-like upper bound on the minimum rank distance of (linear) codes with 'rank-locality' constraints.  ...  The construction builds upon Tamo and Barg's method for constructing locally repairable codes with optimal minimum Hamming distance.  ...  Therefore, an upper bound on the minimum Hamming distance of an (n, k, d ′ )-LRC C ′ with (r, δ) locality is also an upper bound on the rank distance of an (m × n, k, d) rank-metric code with (r, δ) rank-locality  ...

2017 arXiv   pre-print
Recently, locally repairable codes (LRCs) with local erasure correction constraints that are unequal and disjoint have been proposed.  ...  Minimum Distance The minimum distance of linear codes is well known to be characterized by the following lemma [5, Lem.
