Orthogonal ICA Representation of Images
Firstly, this paper answered one interesting question: what is orthogonal in ICA? We discussed the non-orthogonality of ICA transformation and claimed that the independent components (ICs) by the FastICA algorithm are orthogonal. Based on this orthogonality, an orthogonal ICA representation (OICA) of images was proposed. Experiments on ORL database, Yale database and CMU database with OICA were performed. More work is needed to discover any advantage of OICA.
