The nearest neighbor method together with the dynamic time warping (DTW) distance is one of the most popular approaches in time series classification. This method suffers from high storage and computation requirements for large training sets. As a solution to both drawbacks, this article extends learning vector quantization (LVQ) from Euclidean spaces to DTW spaces. The proposed LVQ scheme uses asymmetric weighted averaging as update rule. Empirical results exhibited superior performance of asymmetric generalized LVQ (GLVQ) over other state-of-the-art prototype generation methods for nearest neighbor classification.
