Three features are crucial for sequential forecasting and generation models: tractability, expressiveness, and theoretical backing. While neural autoregressive models are relatively tractable and offer powerful predictive and generative capabilities, they often have complex optimization landscapes, and their theoretical properties are not well understood. To address these issues, we present convex formulations of autoregressive models with one hidden layer.


This work proposes a novel and scalable reinforcement learning approach for routing in ad-hoc wireless networks. In most previous reinforcement learning based routing methods, the links in the network are assumed to be fixed, and a different agent is trained for


Distributed hardware of acoustic sensor networks bears inconsistency of local sampling frequencies, which is detrimental to signal processing. Fundamentally, sampling rate offset (SRO) nonlinearly relates the discrete-time signals acquired by different sensor nodes. As such, retrieval of SRO from the available signals requires nonlinear estimation, like double-cross-correlation processing (DXCP), and frequently results in biased estimation. SRO compensation by asynchronous sampling rate conversion (ASRC) on the signals then leaves an unacceptable residual.


Backpropagation has revolutionized neural network training however, its biological plausibility remains questionable. Hebbian learning, a completely unsupervised and feedback free learning technique is a strong contender for a biologically plausible alternative. However, so far, it has neither achieved high accuracy performance vs. backprop, nor is the training procedure simple. In this work, we introduce a new Hebbian learning based neural network, called Hebb-Net.


One-bit quantization has attracted considerable attention in signal processing for communications and sensing. The arcsine law is a useful relation often used to estimate the normalized covariance matrix of zero-mean stationary input signals when they are sampled by one-bit analog-to-digital converters (ADCs)—practically comparing the signals with a given threshold level. This relation, however, only considers a zero threshold which can cause a remarkable information loss.


A fundamental problem in the design of wireless networks is to efficiently schedule transmission in a distributed manner. The main challenge stems from the fact that optimal link scheduling involves solving a maximum weighted independent set (MWIS) problem, which is NP-hard. For practical link scheduling schemes, distributed greedy approaches are commonly used to approximate the solution of the MWIS problem. However, these greedy schemes mostly ignore important topological information of the wireless networks.
