Abstract: Dimensionality reduction (DR) is an important issue in classification and pattern recognition process. Using features with lower dimensionality helps the machine learning algorithms work more efficient. Besides, it also can improve the performance of the system. This paper explores supervised dimensionality reduction, LDA (Linear Discriminant Analysis), NCA (Neighbourhood Components Analysis), and MCML (Maximally Collapsing Metric Learning), in emotion recognition based on ECG signals from the Mahnob-HCI database. It is a 3-class problem of valence and arousal. Features for kNN (k-nearest neighbour) are based on statistical distribution of dominant frequencies after applying a bivariate empirical mode decomposition. The results were validated using 10-fold cross and LOSO (leave-one-subject-out) validations. Among LDA, NCA, and MCML, the NCA outperformed the other methods. The experiments showed that the accuracy for valence was improved from 55.8% to 64.1%, and for arousal from 59.7% to 66.1% using 10-fold cross validation after transforming the features with projection matrices from NCA. For LOSO validation, there is no significant improvement for valence while the improvement for arousal is significant, i.e. from 58.7% to 69.6%. (More)
