Distance metric learning has exhibited its great power to enhance performance in metric related pattern recognition tasks. The recent large margin nearest neighbor classification (LMNN) improves the performance of k-nearest neighbor classification by learning a global distance metric. However, it does not consider the locality of data distributions, which is crucial in determining a proper metric...
