Li (ICCV, 2005) proposed a novel generative/discriminative way to combine features with different types and use them to learn labels in the images. However, the mixture of Gaussian used in Li's paper suffers greatly from the curse of dimensionality. Here I propose an alternative approach to generate local region descriptor. I treat GMM with diagonal covariance matrix and PCA as separate features, and combine them as the local descriptor. In this way, we could reduce the computational time for
