Statistical Query Lower Bounds for Robust Estimation of High-dimensional Gaussians and Gaussian Mixtures

10 Nov 2016Ilias DiakonikolasDaniel M. KaneAlistair Stewart

We describe a general technique that yields the first {\em Statistical Query lower bounds} for a range of fundamental high-dimensional learning problems involving Gaussian distributions. Our main results are for the problems of (1) learning Gaussian mixture models (GMMs), and (2) robust (agnostic) learning of a single unknown Gaussian distribution... (read more)
