Computer vision, Artificial intelligence, Sensor and data systems
Proof of concept
Algorithm has applications in financial forecasting, gene selection, sensor networks, resource allocation, machine learning and pattern recognition
Solution for the fast, efficient analysis of large quantities of data to identify the most relevant information for further analysis to provide specific information sought
Has been used in face recognition and analysis of gene expression data.
Efficient, near-optimal greedy algorithm for sparse LDA analysis using a discrete spectral formulation based on variational eigenvalue bounds.
Yields better than state-of-the-art performance on sparse PCA benchmarks used in the statistics community
Variational spectral method for finding optimal solutions using branch-and-bound search
Algorithm has been fruitfully applied to various real-world computer vision and machine learning tasks
Applications in a wide variety of situations where relevant data must be identified from large amounts of inputs in order to provide a relevant analysis, such as stock market analysis, portfolio optimization, bankruptcy prediction, computer vision, face recognition, gene selection, analyzing consumer buying habits
