Though the blind super-resolution problem is nonconvex in nature, recent advance shows the feasibility of a convex formulation which gives the unique recovery guarantee. However, the convexification procedure is coupled with a huge computational cost and is therefore of great interest to investigate fast algorithms. To do so, we adapt an operator splitting approach ADMM and combine it with a novel preconditioning scheme. Numerical results show that the convergence rate is significantly improved by around two orders of magnitudes compared to the currently most adopted solver CVX.

Block-sparse signal recovery without knowledge of block sizes and boundaries, such as those encountered in multi-antenna mmWave channel models, is a hard problem for compressed sensing (CS) algorithms. We propose a novel Sparse Bayesian Learning (SBL) method for block-sparse recovery based on popular CS based regularizers with the function input variable related to total variation (TV). Contrary to conventional approaches that impose the regularization on the signal components, we regularize the SBL hyperparameters.

The ability of an autonomous vehicle to perform 3D tracking is essential for safe planing and navigation in cluttered environments. The main challenges for multi-object tracking (MOT) in autonomous driving applications reside in the inherent uncertainties regarding the number of objects, when and where the objects may appear and disappear, and uncertainties regarding objects' states. Random finite set (RFS) based approaches can naturally model these uncertainties accurately and elegantly, and they have been widely used in radar-based tracking applications.

Safe screening rules are powerful tools to accelerate iterative solvers in sparse regression problems. They allow early identification of inactive coordinates (i.e., those not belonging to the support of the solution) which can thus be screened out in the course of iterations. In this paper, we extend the GAP Safe screening rule to the L1-regularized Kullback-Leibler divergence which does not fulfill the regularity assumptions made in previous works. The proposed approach is experimentally validated on synthetic and real count data sets.

In this paper, we propose a method to estimate the proximity of an acoustic reflector, e.g., a wall, using ego-noise, i.e., the noise produced by the moving parts of a listening robot. This is achieved by estimating the times of arrival of acoustic echoes reflected from the surface. Simulated experiments show that the proposed non-intrusive approach is capable of accurately estimating the distance of a reflector up to 1 meter and outperforms a previously proposed intrusive approach under loud ego-noise conditions.

A consensus based distributed algorithm to compute
the spectral radius of a network is proposed. The spectral radius
of the graph is the largest eigenvalue of the adjacency matrix, and
is a useful characterization of the network graph. Conventionally,
centralized methods are used to compute the spectral radius, which
involves eigenvalue decomposition of the adjacency matrix of the
underlying graph. Our distributed algorithm uses a simple update
rule to reach consensus on the spectral radius, using only local

Turing computability deals with the question of what is theoretically computable on a digital computer, and hence is relevant whenever digital hardware is used. In this paper we study different possibilities to define computable bandlimited signals and systems. We consider a definition that uses finite Shannon sampling series as approximating functions and another that employs computable continuous functions together with an effectively computable time concentration. We discuss the advantages and drawbacks of both definitions and analyze the connections and differences.

To extract robust deep representations from long sequential modeling of speech data, we propose a self-supervised learning approach, namely Contrastive Separative Coding (CSC). Our key finding is to learn such representations by separating the target signal from contrastive interfering signals.
