Abstract : This paper is concerned with the problem of learning a distance metric by considering meaningful and dis-criminative distance constraints in some contexts where rich information between data is provided. Classic metric learning approaches focus on constraints that involve pairs or triplets of images. We propose a general Mahalanobis-like distance metric learning framework that exploits distance constraints over up to four different images. We show how the integration of such constraints can lead to unsupervised or semi-supervised learning tasks in some applications. We also show the benefit on recognition performance of this type of constraints, in rich contexts such as relative attributes, class taxonomies and temporal webpage analysis.
