Sparse Modeling in Image Processing and Deep LearningSparse approximation is a well-established theory, with a profound impact on the fields of signal and image processing. In this talk we start by presenting this model and its features, and then turn to describe two special cases of it – the convolutional sparse coding (CSC) and its multi-layered version (ML-CSC). Amazingly, as we will carefully show, ML-CSC provides a solid theoretical foundation to … deep-learning.

Optimal power flow (OPF) is one of the most important optimization problems in the energy industry. In its simplest form, OPF attempts to find the optimal power that the generators within the grid have to produce to satisfy a given demand. Optimality is measured with respect to the cost that each generator incurs in producing this power. The OPF problem is non-convex due to the sinusoidal nature of electrical generation and thus is difficult to solve.

- Log in to post comments

Enhanced Super-Resolution Generative Adversarial Network (ESRGAN) is a perceptual-driven approach for single image super-resolution that is able to produce photorealistic images. Despite the visual quality of these generated images, there is still room for improvement. In this fashion, the model is extended to further improve the perceptual quality of the images. We have designed a network architecture with a novel basic block to replace the one used by the original ESRGAN. Moreover, we introduce noise inputs to the generator network in order to exploit stochastic variation.

Reinforcement Learning enables to train an agent via interaction with the environment. However, in the majority of real-world scenarios, the extrinsic feedback is sparse or not sufficient, thus intrinsic reward formulations are needed to successfully train the agent. This work investigates and extends the paradigm of curiosity-driven exploration. First, a probabilistic approach is taken to exploit the advantages of the attention mechanism, which is successfully applied in other domains of Deep Learning.

Non-intrusive load monitoring (a.k.a. power disaggregation) refers to identifying and extracting the consumption patterns of individual appliances from the mains which records the whole-house energy consumption. Recently, deep learning has been shown to be a promising method to solve this problem and many approaches based on it have been proposed.

While there is now a significant literature on sparse inverse covariance estimation, all that literature, with only a couple of exceptions, has dealt only with univariate (or scalar) net- works where each node carries a univariate signal. However in many, perhaps most, applications, each node may carry multivariate signals representing multi-attribute data, possibly of different dimensions. Modelling such multivariate (or vector) networks requires fitting block-sparse inverse covariance matrices. Here we achieve maximal block sparsity by maximizing a block-l0-sparse penalized likelihood.

Time-series clustering involves grouping homogeneous time series together based on certain similarity measures. The mixture AR model (MxAR) has already been developed for time series clustering, as has an associated EM algorithm. How- ever, this EM clustering algorithm fails to perform satisfactorily in large-scale applications due to its high computational complexity. This paper proposes a new algorithm, k-ARs, which is a limiting version of the existing EM algorithm.
