A new algorithm for learning jointly reconstructive and discriminative dictionaries for sparse representation (SR) is presented. While in a usual dictionary learning algorithm like K-SVD only the reconstructive aspect of the sparse representations is considered to learn a dictionary, in our proposed algorithm, which we call K-LDA, the discriminative aspect of the sparse representations is also addressed. In fact, K-LDA is an extension of K-SVD in the case that the class informations (labels) of the training data are also available. K-LDA takes into account these information in order to make the sparse representations more discriminate. It makes a trade-off between the amount of reconstruction error, sparsity, and discrimination of sparse representations. Simulation results on synthetic and hand-written data demonstrate the promising performance of our proposed algorithm.
