Learning Vector Quantization With Alternative Distance Criteria

By J. S. Sánchez and F. Pla


An adaptive algorithm for training of a Nearest Neighbour (NN) classifier is developed in this paper. This learning rule has got some similarity to the well-known LVQ method, but using the nearest centroid neighbourhood concept to estimate optimal locations of the codebook vectors. The aim of this approach is to improve the performance of the standard LVQ algorithms when using a very small codebook. The behaviour of the learning technique proposed here is experimentally compared to those of the plain k-NN decision rule and the LVQ algorithms. 1
