Accelerated nonlinear Gaussianization for feature extraction

A. P. Condurache, A. Mertins


In a multi-class classification setup, the Gaussianization represents a nonlinear feature extraction transform with the purpose of achieving Gaussian class-conditional densities in the transformed space. The computational complexity of such a transformation increases with the dimension of the processed feature space in such a way that only relatively small dimensions can be processed. In this contribution we describe how to reduce the computational burden with the help of an adaptive grid. Thus, the Gaussianization transform is able to also handle feature spaces of higher dimensionality, improving upon its practical usability. On both artificially generated and real-application data, we demonstrate a decrease in computation complexity in comparison to the standard Gaussianization, while maintaining the effectiveness.
