Automatic hierarchy generation using linear discriminant projection approach is presented. The approach measures the similarities between categories by the distances between category centroids in the transformed space. A hierarchical clustering method is used to generate the dendogram based on the similarity measures. The experiments demonstrate that generated hierarchies can improve classification performance on most datasets.
