In this paper, we consider the problem of joint sensor calibration and target signature estimation using distributed measurements from a large-scale wireless sensor network with random link variations. Specifically, we propose a new Distributed Space-Alternating Generalized Expectation Maximization (EM) algorithm, DSAGE, which can estimate the (constrained)… (More)
We consider the problem of joint enhancement of multichannel images with pixel based constraints on the multichannel data. Previous work by Cetin and Karl introduced nonquadratic regularization methods for SAR image enhancement using sparsity enforcing penalty terms. We formulate an optimization problem that jointly enhances complex-valued multichannel… (More)
Sparse coding, an unsupervised feature learning technique, is often used as a basic building block to construct deep networks. Convolutional sparse coding is proposed in the literature to overcome the scalability issues of sparse coding techniques to large images. In this paper we propose an efficient algorithm, based on the fast iterative shrinkage… (More)
Deep learning methods have resulted in significant performance improvements in several application domains and as such several software frameworks have been developed to facilitate their implementation. This paper presents a comparative study of four deep learning frameworks, namely Caffe, Neon, Theano, and Torch, on three aspects: extensibility, hardware… (More)
In this paper we consider the problem of joint enhancement of multichannel Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data. Previous work by Cetin and Karl introduced nonquadratic regularization methods for image enhancement using sparsity enforcing penalty terms. For multichannel data, independent enhancement of each channel is shown to degrade the relative phase… (More)
We introduce Universum learning ,  for multiclass problems and propose a novel formulation for multiclass universum SVM (MU-SVM). We also propose a span bound for MU-SVM that can be used for model selection thereby avoiding resampling. Empirical results demonstrate the effectiveness of MU-SVM and the proposed bound.
In this paper, we consider the problem of event classification with multi-variate time series data consisting of heterogeneous (continuous and categorical) variables. The complex temporal dependencies between the variables combined with sparsity of the data makes the event classification problem particularly challenging. Most state-of-art approaches address… (More)
