1:15 PM | Sunday Morning Insight: The Great Convergence ?
While empirical evidence is great, we all yearn to have a disciplined approach to some of the most recent results in Machine Learning. The next two papers are instances of providing a Framework on how to go conceptually from things we know theoretically to things that seem to work well. The first paper is about Kernel Machines using L1 regularization while the second is about the convexity of Neural Networks, an important property as has been shown in compressive sensing.  Different […]

8:02 PM | Science Blogging Through Time
"So a lot of times, like I'll write a blog post because something in the media is wrong. Right, like they misrepresented the science, or, they're talking about __ in an incorrect way, or, basically, something has engaged mass public appeal, and the record needs to be corrected, and obviously, everybody's going to be coming running to [my blog], to find out the true answer [sarcastic]. And so, it's really just more of a compulsion, where I'm like, I want to... Read more

6:00 AM | Phase recovery from a Bayesian point of view: the variational approach - implementation -
Phase recovery from a Bayesian point of view: the variational approach by Angélique Drémeau, Florent Krzakala In this paper, we consider the phase recovery problem, where a complex signal vector has to be estimated from the knowledge of the modulus of its linear projections, from a naive variational Bayesian point of view. In particular, we derive an iterative algorithm following the minimization of the Kullback-Leibler divergence under the mean-field assumption, and show on […]
