Abstract is:

According to Herbert A. Simon, “the more relevant patterns at your disposal, the better your decisions will be.” In this talk, we introduce an asymmetric kernel for compressed learning representation. The kernel can be utilized for stretchable learning where feature compression and target fitting can be performed at the same time. The learning is subsequently extended to classifier learning where an error counting objective is desired. Some numerical examples on benchmark datasets will be given to demonstrate the effectiveness of the learning method.
