Since standard canonical correlation analysis (CCA) works with vectorized representations of data, an limitation is that it may suffer small sample size problems. Moreover, two-dimensional CCA (2D-CCA) extracts unsupervised features and thus ignores the useful prior class information. This makes the extracted features by 2D-CCA hard to discriminate the data from different classes. To solve this issue, we simultaneously take the prior class information of intra-view and inter-view samples into account and propose a new 2D-CCA method referred to as supervised two-dimensional CCA (S2CCA), which can be used for multi-view feature extraction and classification. The method we propose is available to face recognition. To verify the effectiveness of the proposed method, we perform a number of experiments on the AR, AT&T, and CMU PIE face databases. The results show that the proposed method has better recognition accuracy than other existing multi-view feature extraction methods.
