Abstract

We present a fast training algorithm for the kernel Fisher discriminant classifier. It uses a greedy approximation technique and has an empirical scaling behavior which improves upon the state of the art by more than an order of magnitude, thus rendering the kernel Fisher algorithm a viable option also for large datasets.
