4:30 PM | The generalized Lasso with non-linear observations
The generalized Lasso with non-linear observations by Yaniv Plan, Roman Vershynin We study the problem of signal estimation from non-linear observations when the signal belongs to a low-dimensional set buried in a high-dimensional space. A rough heuristic often used in practice postulates that non-linear observations may be treated as noisy linear observations, and thus the signal may be estimated using the generalized Lasso. This is appealing because of the abundance of efficient, specialized […]

Some people love numbers. And some find them odious and evil. And others manage to embrace both positive and negative sentiments at the same time. Take for example, mathematicians Jean-Paul Allouche, Benoit Cloitre and Vladimir Shevelev who have authored a paper with a distinctively Nietzschean title : ‘Beyond odious and evil’ in: arXiv:1405.6214v1 [math.NT] 23 […]

8:05 AM | TED: The Athletic Power Of Quadcopters
In this educational and entertaining TED video, Raffaello D’Andrea shows what his quadcopters are capable of inside the robot lab at TEDGlobal. These quadcopters are extremely advanced, programmed to learn intuitively through special algorithms that help them to solve real, physical problems they run into on the fly. These demos are truly amazing. Enjoy! Read more → The post TED: The Athletic Power Of Quadcopters appeared first on UAV Coach.

6:00 AM | On the Equivalence between Quadrature Rules and Random Features
On the Equivalence between Quadrature Rules and Random Features by Francis Bach We show that kernel-based quadrature rules for computing integrals are a special case of random feature expansions for positive definite kernels for a particular decomposition that always exists for such kernels. We provide a theoretical analysis of the number of required samples for a given approximation error, leading to both upper and lower bounds that are based solely on the eigenvalues of the associated […]

5:22 AM | How to Write a Dissertation without Going Nuts
A month and a half ago I started writing my dissertation. Data collection started about 10 months ago, and I was still deep in data analysis in January when I realized I was going to have to start writing as I was analyzing data in order to get this thing done in time. A draft will go to my chair on Friday! (Whoa.) What is a dissertation anyway? Google tells me it's "a long essay on a particular subject, especially one... Read more
