Paper Abstract

An information fusion approach is presented for mapping a multiple dimensional feature space into a lower dimensional decision space with simplified decision boundaries. A new statistic, called the tie statistic, is used to perform the mapping by measuring differences in probability density functions of features. These features are then evaluated based on the separation of the decision classes using a parametric beta representation for the tie statistic. The feature evaluation and fusion methods are applied to perform texture recognition.
