Given a training set of images and a binary classifier,we introduce the notion of an exaggerated image stereotype forsome image class of interest, which emphasizes/exaggerates thecharacteristic patterns in an image and visualizes which visualinformation the classification relies on. This is useful for gaininginsight into the classification mechanism. The exaggerated imagestereotypes results in a proper trade-off between classificationaccuracy and likelihood of being generated from the class ofinterest. This is done by optimizing an objective function whichconsists of a discriminative term based on the classificationresult, and a generative term based on the assumption ofthe class distribution. We use this idea with Fisher’s LinearDiscriminant rule, and assume a multivariate normal distributionfor samples within a class. The proposed framework has beenapplied on handwritten digit data, illustrating specific featuresdifferentiating digits. Then it is applied to a face dataset usingActive Appearance Model (AAM), where male faces stereotypesare evolved from initial female faces.
