Uncertainty-Driven Adaptive Sampling via GANs

23 Oct 2020  ·  Thomas Sanchez, Igor Krawczuk, Zhaodong Sun, Volkan Cevher ·

We propose an adaptive sampling method for the linear model, driven by the uncertainty estimation with a generative adversarial network (GAN) model. Specifically, given a forward observation model that provides partial measurements $\vy$ about an unknown parameter $\x$, we show how to build a GAN model to estimate its posterior $p(\x|\y)$. We then leverage our approximate posterior to perform sequential adaptive sampling by actively selecting the measurement with the current maximal uncertainty. We empirically demonstrate that our posterior estimate contracts rapidly towards the correct mode, while outperforming the state-of-the-art approaches even for other criteria for which they are specifically trained, such as PSNR or SSIM.
