Traditional supervised multiple kernel learning (MKL) for dimensionality reduction is generally an extension of kernel discriminant analysis (KDA), which has some restrictive assumptions. In addition, they generally are based on graph embedding framework. A more general multiple kernel-based dimensionality reduction algorithm, called multiple kernel marginal Fisher analysis (MKL-MFA), is presented for supervised nonlinear dimensionality reduction combined with ratio-race optimization problem.

To improve the efficiency of multiple kernel dimensionality reduction, the spectral regression frameworks are incorporated into the optimization model. Furthermore, the optimal weights of predefined base kernels can be obtained by solving a different convex optimization. Experimental results on benchmark datasets demonstrate that MKL-MFA outperforms the state-of-the-art supervised multiple kernel dimensionality reduction methods.
