The inconvenience in determining the kernel and the parameters has motivated the use of local nearest neighbor (NN) classifiers in lieu of global classifiers. This substitution ignores the advantage of SVM in global error minimization. On the other hand, the NN rule assumes that class conditional probabilities are locally constant. Such an assumption does not hold near class boundaries and in any high dimensional space due to the curse of dimensionality. We propose a hybrid classification method combining the global SVM and local NN classifiers. Local classifiers occur only when the global SVM is likely to fail. Furthermore, local NN classifiers adopt an adaptive metric driven by local SVM discriminative boundaries. Improved performance has been demonstrated compared to partially similar. © 2009 IEEE.||Source Title:||2009 4th IEEE Conference on Industrial Electronics and Applications, ICIEA 2009||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/69635||ISBN:||9781424428007||DOI:||10.1109/ICIEA.2009.5138876|
