Beyond Maximum Likelihood: from Theory to Practice

26 Sep 2014Jiantao JiaoKartik VenkatYanjun HanTsachy Weissman

Maximum likelihood is the most widely used statistical estimation technique. Recent work by the authors introduced a general methodology for the construction of estimators for functionals in parametric models, and demonstrated improvements - both in theory and in practice - over the maximum likelihood estimator (MLE), particularly in high dimensional scenarios involving parameter dimension comparable to or larger than the number of samples...
