Adaptive Feature and Score Level Fusion Strategy using Genetic Algorithms

Abstract : Classifier fusion is considered as one of the best strategies for improving performances upon general purpose classification systems. On the other hand, fusion strategy space strongly depends on classifiers, features and data spaces. As the cardinality of this space is exponential, one needs to resort to a heuristic to find out a sub-optimal fusion strategy. In this work, we present a new adaptive feature and score level fusion strategy (AFSFS) based on adaptive genetic algorithm. AFSFS tunes itself between feature and matching score levels, and improves the final performance over the original on two levels, and as a fusion method, not only it contains fusion strategy to combine the most relevant features so as to achieve adequate and optimized results, but also has the extensive ability to select the most discriminative features. Experiments are provided on the FRGC database and show that the proposed method produces significantly better results than the baseline fusion methods.
