Domain adaptation using manifold alignment
Domain adaptation is a major challenge for future remote sensing applications. Both financial and temporal constraints of data acquisition lead to the developing of new techniques able to use knowledge from alternative sources. Different approaches have been developed by considering the statistical properties of images or by modifying already existing classifiers. We propose a intermediary approach of these two kinds of methods by using a manifold alignment technique constrained by similarity between two images. The two images are mapped in a high dimensional latent space which maximizes the proximity of similar elements, thus allowing classification of the images suffering from label scarcity by using the knowledge of the other image. Such a classification offers improvement compared to various used processes.
