Open Access research with a European policy impact...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC).

EPRC is a leading institute in Europe for comparative research on public policy, with a particular focus on regional development policies. Spanning 30 European countries, EPRC research programmes have a strong emphasis on applied research and knowledge exchange, including the provision of policy advice to EU institutions and national and sub-national government authorities throughout Europe.

Although PCA has been widely used for feature extraction and data reduction, it suffers from three main drawbacks: high computational cost, large memory requirement and low efficacy in processing large datasets such as HSI. This column analysed two variations of PCA, namely SPCA and Seg-PCA. Seg-PCA can further improve classification accuracy whilst significantly reducing the computational cost and memory requirement, without requiring prior knowledge. There is potential to apply similar feature extraction and data reduction techniques in application areas beyond HSI when analysis of large dimensional datasets is required such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and digital video processing.
