This works deals with discriminant training of Gaussian Mixture Models through margin maximization. We go one step further previous work, we propose a new formulation of the learning problem that allows the use of efficient optimization algorithm popularized for Support Vector Machines, yielding improved convergence properties and recognition accuracy on handwritten digits recognition.
