Fast and Scalable Spike and Slab Variable Selection in High-Dimensional Gaussian Processes

1 code implementation8 Nov 2021 Hugh Dance, Brooks Paige

Variable selection in Gaussian processes (GPs) is typically undertaken by thresholding the inverse lengthscales of automatic relevance determination kernels, but in high-dimensional datasets this approach can be unreliable.

I Don't Need u: Identifiable Non-Linear ICA Without Side Information

1 code implementation9 Jun 2021 Matthew Willetts, Brooks Paige

Surprisingly, we discover side information is not necessary for algorithmic stability: using standard quantitative measures of identifiability, we find deep generative models with latent clusterings are empirically identifiable to the same degree as models which rely on auxiliary labels.
