Abstract

A clever information fusion algorithm is a key component in designing a robust multimodal biometrics algorithm. We present a novel information fusion approach that can be a very useful tool for multimodal biometrics learning. The proposed technique is a multiple view generalization of AdaBoost in the sense that weak learners from various information sources are selected in each iteration based on lowest weighted error rate. Weak learners trained on individual views in each iteration rectify the bias introduced by learners in preceding iterations resulting in a self regularizing behavior. We compare the classification performance of proposed technique with recent classifier fusion strategies in various domains such as face detection, gender classification and texture classification.
