    Finding Support Documents with a Logistic Regression Approach

    Entity retrieval finds the relevant results for a user’s information needs at a finer unit called “entity”. To retrieve such entity, people usually first locate a small set of support documents which contain answer entities, and then further detect the answer entities in this set. In the literature, people view the support documents as relevant documents, and their findings as a conventional document retrieval problem. In this paper, we will state that finding support documents and that of relevant documents, although sounds similar, have important differences. Further, we propose a logistic regression approach to find support documents. Our experiment results show that the logistic regression method performs significantly better than a baseline system that treat the support document finding as a conventional document retrieval problem

    Locality and Structure Regularized Low Rank Representation for Hyperspectral Image Classification

    Hyperspectral image (HSI) classification, which aims to assign an accurate label for hyperspectral pixels, has drawn great interest in recent years. Although low rank representation (LRR) has been used to classify HSI, its ability to segment each class from the whole HSI data has not been exploited fully yet. LRR has a good capacity to capture the underlying lowdimensional subspaces embedded in original data. However, there are still two drawbacks for LRR. First, LRR does not consider the local geometric structure within data, which makes the local correlation among neighboring data easily ignored. Second, the representation obtained by solving LRR is not discriminative enough to separate different data. In this paper, a novel locality and structure regularized low rank representation (LSLRR) model is proposed for HSI classification. To overcome the above limitations, we present locality constraint criterion (LCC) and structure preserving strategy (SPS) to improve the classical LRR. Specifically, we introduce a new distance metric, which combines both spatial and spectral features, to explore the local similarity of pixels. Thus, the global and local structures of HSI data can be exploited sufficiently. Besides, we propose a structure constraint to make the representation have a near block-diagonal structure. This helps to determine the final classification labels directly. Extensive experiments have been conducted on three popular HSI datasets. And the experimental results demonstrate that the proposed LSLRR outperforms other state-of-the-art methods.Comment: 14 pages, 7 figures, TGRS201
