SUMMARY:Local Geometric Analysis and Applications
DESCRIPTION:Abstract: Local geometric analysis is a method to define a coordinate system in a small neighborhood in the space of distributions over a given alphabet. It is a powerful technique since the notions of distance\, projection\, and inner product defined this way are useful in the optimization problems involving distributions\, such as regressions. It has been used in many places in the literature such as correlation analysis\, correspondence analysis. In this talk\, we will go through some of the basic setups and properties\, and discuss a few applications in information theory\, dimension reduction and softmax regression. \n About this Seminar: This seminar consists of a series of lectures each followed by a period of informal discussion and social. The topics are at the nexus of information theory\, inference\, causality\, estimation\, and non-convex optimization. The lectures are intended to be tutorial in nature with the goal of learning about interesting and exciting topics rather than merely hearing about the most recent results. The topics are driven by the interests of the speakers\, and with the exception of the two lectures on randomness and information\, there is no planned coherence or dependency among them. Ad hoc follow-on meetings about any of the topics presented are highly encouraged.
