In this paper, we study the problem of using contextual da- ta points of a data point for its classification problem. We propose to represent a data point as the sparse linear reconstruction of its context, and learn the sparse context to gather with a linear classifier in a su- pervised way to increase its discriminative ability... We proposed a novel formulation for context learning, by modeling the learning of context reconstruction coefficients and classifier in a unified objective. In this objective, the reconstruction error is minimized and the coefficient spar- sity is encouraged. Moreover, the hinge loss of the classifier is minimized and the complexity of the classifier is reduced. This objective is opti- mized by an alternative strategy in an iterative algorithm. Experiments on three benchmark data set show its advantage over state-of-the-art context-based data representation and classification methods. read more
