Inferring sparsity: Compressed sensing using generalized restricted Boltzmann machines

In this work, we consider compressed sensing reconstruction from M measurements of K-sparse structured signals which do not possess a writable correlation model. Assuming that a generative statistical model, such as a Boltzmann machine, can be …

Phase transitions and optimal algorithms in high-dimensional Gaussian mixture clustering

We consider the problem of Gaussian mixture clustering in the high-dimensional limit where the data consists of m points in n dimensions, n,m → ∞ and α = m/n stays finite. Using exact but non-rigorous methods from statistical physics, we determine …

Phase Transitions and Sample Complexity in Bayes-Optimal Matrix Factorization

We analyze the matrix factorization problem. Given a noisy measurement of a product of two matrices, the problem is to estimate back the original matrices. It arises in many applications, such as dictionary learning, blind matrix calibration, sparse …
