Split variational inference
We propose a deterministic method to evaluate the integral of a positive function based on soft-binning functions that smoothly cut the integral into smaller integrals that are ea...

Independent factor topic models
Topic models such as Latent Dirichlet Allocation (LDA) and Correlated Topic Model (CTM) have recently emerged as powerful statistical tools for text document modeling. In this pap...

Online learning by ellipsoid method
In this work, we extend the ellipsoid method, which was originally designed for convex optimization, for online learning. The key idea is to approximate by an ellipsoid the classi...

Active learning for directed exploration of complex systems
Physics-based simulation codes are widely used in science and engineering to model complex systems that would be infeasible to study otherwise. Such codes provide the highest-fid...

Using fast weights to improve persistent contrastive divergence
The most commonly used learning algorithm for restricted Boltzmann machines is contrastive divergence which starts a Markov chain at a data point and runs the chain for only a few...

Supervised learning from multiple experts: whom to trust when everyone lies a bit
We describe a probabilistic approach for supervised learning when we have multiple experts/annotators providing (possibly noisy) labels but no absolute gold standard. The proposed...

Grammatical inference as a principal component analysis problem
One of the main problems in probabilistic grammatical inference consists in inferring a stochastic language, i.e. a probability distribution, in some class of probabilistic models...

Topic-link LDA: joint models of topic and author community
Given a large-scale linked document collection, such as a collection of blog posts or a research literature archive, there are two fundamental problems that have generated a lot o...

Non-monotonic feature selection
We consider the problem of selecting a subset of m most informative features where m is the number of required features. This feature selection problem is essentially a combinator...
