Techniques for integrating different types of multiple features effectively have been actively studied in recent years. Multiset canonical correlation analysis (MCCA), which maximizes the sum of pairwise correlations of inter-view (i.e., between different features), is one of the powerful methods for integrating different types of multiple features, and various MCCA-based methods have been proposed. This work focuses on a supervised MCCA variant in order to construct a novel effective feature

This method constructs not only the correlation structure but also two types of geometrical structures of intra-view (i.e., within each feature) and inter-view simultaneously, thereby realizing more precise feature integration. This method also supports the integration of small sample and high-dimensional data by using the fractional-order technique. We conducted experiments using four types of image datasets, i.e., MNIST, COIL-20, ETH-80 and CIFAR-10. Furthermore, we also performed an fMRI dataset containing brain signals to verify the robustness. As a result, it was confirmed that accuracy improvements using SFGMCCA were statistically significant at the significance level of 0.05 compared to those using conventional representative MCCA-based methods.
