In this paper, we propose supervised dictionary learning (SDL) by incorporating information on class labels into the learning of the dictionary. To this end, we propose to learn the dictionary in a space where the dependency between the signals and their corresponding labels is maximized. To maximize this dependency, the recently introduced Hilbert Schmidt independence criterion (HSIC) is used. One of the main advantages of this novel approach for SDL is that it can be easily kernelized by

We show that it outperforms other unsupervised and supervised dictionary learning approaches in the literature, using real-world data.
