Design of Pattern Classifiers with the Updating Property Using Stochastic Approximation Techniques

Computers, IEEE Transactions on, 1968

Abstract--A nonparametric training procedure for finding the optimal weights of the discriminant functions of a pattern classifier in any optimization criterion, expressible as a convex function from an arbitrary sequence of sample patterns, is proposed. This design procedure is based on the stochastic approximation technique, and has the updating property because it processes the sample patterns whenever they become available. ...


Automated seeded lesion segmentation on digital mammograms

Medical Imaging, IEEE Transactions on, 1998

Segmenting lesions is a vital step in many computerized mass-detection schemes for digital (or digitized) mammograms. The authors have developed two novel lesion segmentation techniques-one based on a single feature called the radial gradient index (RGI) and one based on simple probabilistic models to segment mass lesions, or other similar nodular structures, from surrounding background. In both methods a series ...

It provides a quantitative measure for the uncertainty of the signal. All of the previous work concerning Renyi entropy in the time-frequency plane has focused on determining the number of signal components in a given deterministic signal. We discuss ...

  • Fast Weighted Exponential Product Rules for Robust General Multi-Robot Data Fusion

    This paper considers the distributed data fusion (DDF) problem for general multi-agent robotic sensor networks in applications such as 3D mapping and target search. In particular, this paper focuses on the use of conservative fusion via the weighted exponential product (WEP) rule to combat inconsistencies that arise from double-counting common information between fusion agents. WEP fusion is ideal for fusing arbitrarily distributed estimates in ad-hoc communication network topologies, but current WEP rule variants have limited applicability to general multi-robot DDF. To address these issues, new information-theoretic WEP metrics are presented along with novel optimization algorithms for efficiently performing DDF within a recursive Bayesian estimation framework. While the proposed WEP fusion methods are generalizable to arbitrary probability distribution functions (pdfs), emphasis is placed here on widely-used Bernoulli and Gaussian mixture pdfs. Experimental results for multi-robot 3D mapping and target search applications show the effectiveness of the proposed methods.

  • Distributed Approximation of Joint Measurement Distributions Using Mixtures of Gaussians

    This paper presents algorithms to distributively approximate the continuous probability distribution that describes the fusion of sensor measurements from many networked robots. Each robot forms a weighted mixture of scaled Gaussians to represent the continuous measurement distribution (i.e., likelihood) of its local observation. From this mixture set, each robot then draws samples of Gaussian elements to enable the use of a consensus-based algorithm that evolves the corresponding canonical parameters. We show that these evolved parameters form a distribution that converges weakly to the joint of all the robots' unweighted mixture distributions, which itself converges weakly to the joint measurement distribution as more system resources are allocated. The innovation of this work is the combination of sample-based sensor fusion with the notion of pre-convergence termination without the risk of 'double- counting' any single observation. We also derive bounds and convergence rates for the approximated joint measurement distribution, specifically the elements of its information vectors and the eigenvalues of its information matrices. Most importantly, these performance guarantees do not come at a significant cost of complexity, since computational and communication complexity of the canonical parameters scales quadratically with respect to the Gaussian dimension, linearly with respect to the number of samples, and constant with respect to the number of robots. Results from numerical simulations for object localization are discussed using both Gaussians and mixtures of Gaussians.

  • Feature-Based Prediction of Trajectories for Socially Compliant Navigation

    Mobile robots that operate in a shared environment with humans need the ability to predict the movements of people to better plan their navigation actions. In this paper, we present a novel approach to predict the movements of pedestrians. Our method reasons about entire trajectories that arise from interactions between people in navigation tasks. It applies a maximum entropy learning method based on features that capture relevant aspects of the trajectories to determine the probability distribution that underlies human navigation behavior. Hence, our approach can be used by mobile robots to predict forthcoming interactions with pedestrians and thus react in a socially compliant way. In extensive experiments, we evaluate the capability and accuracy of our approach and demonstrate that our algorithm outperforms the popular social forces method, a state-of-the-art approach. Furthermore, we show how our algorithm can be used for autonomous robot navigation using a real robot.

  • On the Relation Between Low Density Separation, Spectral Clustering and Graph Cuts

    One of the intuitions underlying many graph-based methods for clustering and semi-supervised learning, is that class or cluster boundaries pass through areas of low probability density. In this paper we provide some formal analysis of that notion for a probability distribution. We introduce a notion of weighted boundary volume, which measures the length of the class/cluster boundary weighted by the density of the underlying probability distribution. We show that sizes of the cuts of certain commonly used data adjacency graphs converge to this continuous weighted volume of the boundary.

  • No title

    In these notes, we introduce particle filtering as a recursive importance sampling method that approximates the minimum-mean-square-error (MMSE) estimate of a sequence of hidden state vectors in scenarios where the joint probability distribution of the states and the observations is non-Gaussian and, therefore, closed-form analytical expressions for the MMSE estimate are generally unavailable. We begin the notes with a review of Bayesian approaches to static (i.e., time-invariant) parameter estimation. In the sequel, we describe the solution to the problem of sequential state estimation in linear, Gaussian dynamic models, which corresponds to the well-known Kalman (or Kalman-Bucy) filter. Finally, we move to the general nonlinear, non-Gaussian stochastic filtering problem and present particle filtering as a sequential Monte Carlo approach to solve that problem in a statistically optimal way. We review several techniques to improve the performance of particle filters, including importa ce function optimization, particle resampling, Markov Chain Monte Carlo move steps, auxiliary particle filtering, and regularized particle filtering. We also discuss Rao-Blackwellized particle filtering as a technique that is particularly well-suited for many relevant applications such as fault detection and inertial navigation. Finally, we conclude the notes with a discussion on the emerging topic of distributed particle filtering using multiple processors located at remote nodes in a sensor network. Throughout the notes, we often assume a more general framework than in most introductory textbooks by allowing either the observation model or the hidden state dynamic model to include unknown parameters. In a fully Bayesian fashion, we treat those unknown parameters also as random variables. Using suitable dynamic conjugate priors, that approach can be applied then to perform joint state and parameter estimation.

  • Distribution of the Phase Angle Between Two Vectors Perturbed by Gaussian Noise

    The probability distribution of the phase angle between two vectors perturbed by correlated Gaussian noises is studied in detail. Definite integral expressions are derived for the distribution function, and its asymptotic behavior for large signal-to-noise is found for small, near /2, and large angles. The results are applied to obtain new formulas for the symbol error rate in MDPSK, to calculate the distribution of instantaneous frequency, to study the error rate in digital FM with partial-bit integration in the post- detection filter, and to obtain a simplified expresion for the error rate in DPSK with a phase error in the reference signal. In the degenerate case in which one of the vectors is noise free, the results lead to the symbol error rate in MPSK.
