Compressed Sensing for Semi-Supervised Learning From Big Data Over Networks
Abstract: In this talk I will present some of our most recent work on the application of compressed sensing to semi-supervised learning from massive network-structured datasets, i.e., big data over networks. We expect the user of compressed sensing ideas to be game-changing for machine learning from big data in a similar manner as it was for digital signal processing. In particular, I will present a sparse label propagation algorithm which efficiently learn from large amounts of network-structured unlabeled data by leveraging the information provided by a few initially labelled training data points. This algorithm is inspired by compressed sensing recovery methods and allows for a simple sufficient condition on the network structure which guarantees accurate learning.
Machine Learning Coffee seminars are weekly seminars held jointly by the Aalto University and the University of Helsinki. The seminars aim to gather people from different fields of science with interest in machine learning. Seminars will be held on Mondays at 9 am at Aalto University and the University of Helsinki every other week. At Aalto University, talks will be held in Konemiehentie 2, seminar room T5 and at the University of Helsinki in Kumpula, seminar room D123, unless otherwise noted. Talks will begin at 9:15 am and porridge and coffee will be served from 9:00 am.
