Collaborative filtering (CF) is a popular technique in today's recommender systems, and matrix approximation-based CF methods have achieved great success in both rating prediction and top-N recommendation tasks.

Parameter Transfer Extreme Learning Machine based on Projective Model

1 code implementation4 Sep 2018 Chao Chen, Boyuan Jiang, Xinyu Jin

Unlike the existing parameter transfer approaches, which incorporate the source model information into the target by regularizing the di erence between the source and target domain parameters, an intuitively appealing projective-model is proposed to bridge the source and target model parameters.

A Topological Regularizer for Classifiers via Persistent Homology

no code implementations27 Jun 2018 Chao Chen, Xiuyan Ni, Qinxun Bai, Yusu Wang

In particular, our measurement of topological complexity incorporates the importance of topological features (e. g., connected components, handles, and so on) in a meaningful manner, and provides a direct control over spurious topological structures.

An Approximate Bayesian Long Short-Term Memory Algorithm for Outlier Detection

no code implementations23 Dec 2017 Chao Chen, Xiao Lin, Gabriel Terejanu

In this study, we propose an approximate estimation of the weights uncertainty using Ensemble Kalman Filter, which is easily scalable to a large number of weights.

Mixture-Rank Matrix Approximation for Collaborative Filtering

no code implementations NeurIPS 2017 Dongsheng Li, Chao Chen, Wei Liu, Tun Lu, Ning Gu, Stephen Chu

However, our studies show that submatrices with different ranks could coexist in the same user-item rating matrix, so that approximations with fixed ranks cannot perfectly describe the internal structures of the rating matrix, therefore leading to inferior recommendation accuracy.

Mode Estimation for High Dimensional Discrete Tree Graphical Models

no code implementations NeurIPS 2014 Chao Chen, Han Liu, Dimitris Metaxas, Tianqi Zhao

Though the mode finding problem is generally intractable in high dimensions, this paper unveils that, if the distribution can be approximated well by a tree graphical model, mode characterization is significantly easier.
