Algorithm Fusion in Novelty Detection

Abstract : Algorithm fusion has received significant attention in the machine learning community in supervised learning mode but it appears little has been done at this point in a novelty detection framework. This paper examines the merit of a fusion strategy wherein metrics from multiple algorithms are treated as entries of a vector whose probability density is subsequently estimated and used for detection. In the present paper the framework is investigated using two algorithms: 1) a robust version of a whiteness test on Kalman filter innovations and 2) a robust version of a scheme that operates with residuals obtained from an orthogonality test. The density estimation part of the process is replaced by the Kernel PCA algorithm which provides a decision boundary without having explicit density estimates. The fused scheme is implemented in a change detection format and is show to provide notable improvements over the use of either algorithm independently.
