NeuMiss networks: differentiable programming for supervised learning with missing values

no code implementations3 Jul 2020 Marine Le Morvan, Julie Josse, Thomas Moreau, Erwan Scornet, Gaël Varoquaux

We provide an upper bound on the Bayes risk of NeuMiss networks, and show that they have good predictive accuracy with both a number of parameters and a computational complexity independent of the number of missing data patterns.

Learning to Discover Sparse Graphical Models

1 code implementation ICML 2017 Eugene Belilovsky, Kyle Kastner, Gaël Varoquaux, Matthew Blaschko

Learning this function brings two benefits: it implicitly models the desired structure or sparsity properties to form suitable priors, and it can be tailored to the specific problem of edge structure discovery, rather than maximizing data likelihood.
