What Would You Look Like in Springfield?
Ribana and I developed a combination of subspace methods and a low-dimensional linear transformation to find relations between similar manifolds from different datasets. One application was to relate real world faces with cartoon images from The Simpsons Movie Website.
Using subspace methods one can project high dimensional data like human faces onto very few dimensions like the 2D-plane in this figure.
We can relate samples within these low-dimensional spaces to match human faces (top) with cartoon images (bottom).
