Dissimilarity-Based classification of Multidimensional Signals by Conjoint Elastic Matching : Application to Phytoplanktonic Species Recognition

Guillaume Wacquet

Abstract

The paper describes a classification method of multidimensional signals, based upon a dissimilarity measure between signals. Each new signal is compared to some reference signals through a conjoint dynamic time warping algorithm of their time features series, of which proposed cost function gives out a normalized dissimilarity degree. The classification then consists in presenting these degrees to a classifier, like k-NN, MLP or SVM. This recognition scheme is applied to the automatic estimation of the Phytoplanktonic composition of a marine sample from cytometric curves. At present, biologists are used to a manual classification of signals, that consists in a visual comparison of Phytoplanktonic profiles. The proposed method consequently provides an automatic process, as well as a similar comparison of the signal shapes. We show the relevance of the proposed dissimilarity-based classifier in this environmental application, and compare it with classifiers based on the classical DTW cost-function and also with features-based classifiers.
