Bayesian Estimation of Overcomplete Independent Feature Subspaces for Natural Images
In this paper, we propose a Bayesian estimation approach to extend independent subspace analysis (ISA) for an overcomplete representation without imposing the orthogonal constraint. Our method is based on a synthesis of ISA [1] and overcomplete independent component analysis [2] developed by Hyv¨arinen et al. By introducing the variables of dot products (between basis vectors and whitened observed data vectors), we investigate the energy correlations of dot products in each subspace. Based on the prior probability of quasi-orthogonal basis vectors, the MAP (maximum a posteriori) estimation method is used for learning overcomplete independent feature subspaces. A gradient ascent algorithm is derived to maximize the posterior probability of the mixing matrix. Simulation results on natural images demonstrate that the proposed model can yield overcomplete independent feature subspaces and the emergence of phase- and limited shift-invariant features—the principal properties of visual com...
