On-line Linear Discriminant Classifier: and its Application to Delayed Labelling

We present an on-line Linear Discriminant Classifier for streaming data (O-LDC). This is an adaptation of the Linear Discriminant Classifier, with the class means and the inverse covariance matrix re-calculated after each new data point. The classifier satisfies the properties of an on-line classifier; it learns from a single pass through the data, uses limited memory and processing power, and exhibits any-time learning. We compare the O-LDC with on-line versions of the Perceptron and balanced Winnow classifiers. Comparisons are carried out across a series of static data sets made up of two classes. The O-LDC shows higher accuracy and a better learning rate than its counterparts. As a...
