    Tensor tracking

    Tensor decomposition has been demonstrated to be successful in a wide range of applications, from neuroscience and wireless communications to social networks. In an online setting, factorizing tensors derived from multidimensional data streams is however non-trivial due to several inherent problems of real-time stream processing. In recent years, many research efforts have been dedicated to developing online techniques for decomposing such tensors, resulting in significant advances in streaming tensor decomposition or tensor tracking. This topic is emerging and enriches the literature on tensor decomposition, particularly from the data stream analytics perspective. In this project, we develop several new algorithms for tracking the online LRA of streaming tensors over time. Under the CP/PARAFAC format, we leverage the alternative minimization and randomized sketching techniques to develop ACP and RACP which are capable of factorizing incomplete tensors and corrupted tensors, respectively. Under the Tucker format, we propose another online algorithm called ATD. ATD first tracks the underlying low-dimensional subspaces covering the tensor factors and then estimates the core tensor using a stochastic approximation. A unified convergence analysis was presented to justify their performance. In parallel, we design some adaptive algorithms for streaming tensor-train decomposition which are also capable of tracking the low-rank components of high-order tensors from noisy, imperfect, and high-dimensional data with high accuracy.

    Machine learning based beacon placement optimization for indoor robots localization

    Indoor localization systems usually consist of transceiver with fixed positions, which are called beacons. These beacons act as landmarks for localizing objects that need to be positioned. One can easily see that the positions of beacons have a great impact on the performance of the localization system. The problem of beacon placement optimization is to […]
