Discovering the underlying low-dimensional latent structure in high-dimensional perceptual observations (e.g., images, video) can, in many cases, greatly improve performance in recognition and tracking. However, non-linear dimensionality reduction methods are often susceptible to local minima and perform poorly when initialized far from the global optimum, even when the intrinsic dimensionality is known a priori. In this work we introduce a prior over the dimensionality of the latent space that… CONTINUE READING
