We apply Learning Vector Quantization (LVQ) in automated boar semen quality assessment. The classification of single boar sperm heads into healthy (normal) and non-normal ones is based on grey-scale microscopic images only. Sample data was classified by veterinary experts and is used for training a system with a number of prototypes for each class. We apply as training schemes Kohonen’s LVQ1 and the variants Generalized LVQ (GLVQ) and Generalized Relevance LVQ (GRLVQ). We compare their performance and study the influence of the employed metric.
