With the development of deep learning, many state-of-the-art natural image scene classification methods have demonstrated impressive performance. While the current convolution neural network tends to extract global features and global semantic information in a scene, the geo-spatial objects can be located at anywhere in an aerial image scene and their spatial arrangement tends to be more complicated. One possible solution is to preserve more local semantic information and enhance feature propagation.

Zero-Shot learning (ZSL) recently has drawn a lot of attention due to its ability to transfer knowledge from seen classes to novel unseen classes, which greatly reduces human labor of labelling data for building new classifiers. Much effort on ZSL however has focused on the standard multi-class setting, the more challenging multi-label zero-shot problem has received limited attention. In this paper, we propose a transfer-aware embedding projection approach to tackle multi-label zero-shot learning.

We model the sampling and recovery of clustered graph signals as a reinforcement learning (RL) problem. The signal sampling is carried out by an agent which crawls over the graph and selects the most relevant graph nodes to sample. The goal of the agent is to select signal samples which allow for the most accurate recovery. The sample selection is formulated as a multi-armed bandit (MAB) problem, which lends naturally to learning efficient sampling strategies using the well-known gradient MAB algorithm.

Deep learning models have significantly improved the visual quality and accuracy on compressive sensing recovery. In this paper, we propose an algorithm for signal reconstruction from compressed measurements with image priors captured by a generative model. We search and constrain on latent variable space to make the method stable when the number of compressed measurements is extremely limited. We show that, by exploiting certain structures of the latent variables, the proposed method produces improved reconstruction accuracy and preserves realistic and non-smooth features in the image.

Improving disease outcome prediction can greatly aid in the strategic deployment of secondary prevention approaches. We develop a method to predict the evolution of diseases by taking into account personal attributes of the subjects and their relationships with medical examination results. Our approach builds upon a recent formulation of this problem as a graph-based geometric matrix completion task. The primary innovation is the introduction of multiple graphs, each relying on a different combination of subject attributes.

Inferring air quality from a limited number of observations is an essential task for monitoring and controlling air pollution. Existing inference methods typically use low spatial resolution data collected by fixed monitoring stations and infer the concentration of air pollutants using additional types of data, e.g., meteorological and traffic information. In this work, we focus on street-level air quality inference by utilizing data collected by mobile stations.

This paper introduces the use of adaptive restart to accelerate iterative hard thresholding (IHT) for low-rank matrix completion. First, we analyze the local convergence of accelerated IHT in the non-convex setting of matrix completion problem (MCP). We prove the linear convergence rate of the accelerated algorithm inside the region near the solution. Our analysis poses a major challenge to parameter selection for accelerated IHT when no prior knowledge of the "local Hessian condition number" is given.

We present a momentum-based accelerated iterative hard thresholding (IHT) for low-rank matrix completion. We analyze the convergence of the proposed Heavy Ball (HB) accelerated IHT near the solution and provide optimal step size parameters that guarantee the fastest rate of convergence. Since the optimal step sizes depend on the unknown structure of the solution matrix, we further propose a heuristic for parameter selection that is inspired by recent results in random matrix theory.

To meet increasing demands of wireless multimedia communications, caching of important contents in advance is one of the key solutions. Optimal caching depends on content popularity in future which is unknown in advance. In this paper, modeling content popularity as a finite state Markov chain, reinforcement Q-learning is employed to learn optimal content placement strategy in homogeneous Poisson point process (PPP) distributed caching network.

We present a new method for boundary detection within sequential data using compression-based analytics. Our approach is to approximate the information distance between two adjacent sliding windows within the sequence. Large values in the distance metric are indicative of boundary locations. A new algorithm is developed, referred to as sliding information distance (SLID), that provides a fast, accurate, and robust approximation to the normalized information distance. A modified smoothed z-score algorithm is used to locate peaks in the distance metric, indicating boundary locations.
