Intrinsic Isometric Manifold Learning with Application to Unsupervised Localization from Image DataMS53

Data living on manifolds commonly appear in many applications. We show that under certain conditions, it is possible to construct an intrinsic and isometric data representation which respects the latent intrinsic manifold geometry. Namely, instead of learning the structure of the observed manifold, we view the observed data only as a proxy and learn the structure of a latent unobserved intrinsic manifold. We show successful application to unsupervised indoor localization in ad-hoc sensor networks.
