Learning Discrete Directed Acyclic Graphs via Backpropagation

no code implementations27 Oct 2022 Andrew J. Wren, Pasquale Minervini, Luca Franceschi, Valentina Zantedeschi

Recently continuous relaxations have been proposed in order to learn Directed Acyclic Graphs (DAGs) from data by backpropagation, instead of using combinatorial optimization.

On Margins and Generalisation for Voting Classifiers

1 code implementation9 Jun 2022 Felix Biggs, Valentina Zantedeschi, Benjamin Guedj

We study the generalisation properties of majority voting on finite ensembles of classifiers, proving margin-based generalisation bounds via the PAC-Bayes theory.

Unsupervised Change Detection of Extreme Events Using ML On-Board

1 code implementation4 Nov 2021 Vít Růžička, Anna Vaughan, Daniele De Martini, James Fulton, Valentina Salvatelli, Chris Bridges, Gonzalo Mateo-Garcia, Valentina Zantedeschi

In this paper, we introduce RaVAEn, a lightweight, unsupervised approach for change detection in satellite data based on Variational Auto-Encoders (VAEs) with the specific purpose of on-board deployment.

Learning Binary Decision Trees by Argmin Differentiation

1 code implementation9 Oct 2020 Valentina Zantedeschi, Matt J. Kusner, Vlad Niculae

We address the problem of learning binary decision trees that partition data for some downstream task.

Learning Binary Trees via Sparse Relaxation

no code implementations28 Sep 2020 Valentina Zantedeschi, Matt Kusner, Vlad Niculae

In this work we derive a novel sparse relaxation for binary tree learning.


Cumulo: A Dataset for Learning Cloud Classes

1 code implementation5 Nov 2019 Valentina Zantedeschi, Fabrizio Falasca, Alyson Douglas, Richard Strange, Matt J. Kusner, Duncan Watson-Parris

One of the greatest sources of uncertainty in future climate projections comes from limitations in modelling clouds and in understanding how different cloud types interact with the climate system.

Learning Landmark-Based Ensembles with Random Fourier Features and Gradient Boosting

no code implementations14 Jun 2019 Léo Gautheron, Pascal Germain, Amaury Habrard, Emilie Morvant, Marc Sebban, Valentina Zantedeschi

Unlike state-of-the-art Multiple Kernel Learning techniques that make use of a pre-computed dictionary of kernel functions to select from, at each iteration we fit a kernel by approximating it as a weighted sum of Random Fourier Features (RFF) and by optimizing their barycenter.

Fully Decentralized Joint Learning of Personalized Models and Collaboration Graphs

1 code implementation24 Jan 2019 Valentina Zantedeschi, Aurélien Bellet, Marc Tommasi

We consider the fully decentralized machine learning scenario where many users with personal datasets collaborate to learn models through local peer-to-peer exchanges, without a central coordinator.

Adversarial Robustness Toolbox v1.0.0

5 code implementations3 Jul 2018 Maria-Irina Nicolae, Mathieu Sinn, Minh Ngoc Tran, Beat Buesser, Ambrish Rawat, Martin Wistuba, Valentina Zantedeschi, Nathalie Baracaldo, Bryant Chen, Heiko Ludwig, Ian M. Molloy, Ben Edwards

Defending Machine Learning models involves certifying and verifying model robustness and model hardening with approaches such as pre-processing inputs, augmenting training data with adversarial samples, and leveraging runtime detection methods to flag any inputs that might have been modified by an adversary.

Efficient Defenses Against Adversarial Attacks

no code implementations21 Jul 2017 Valentina Zantedeschi, Maria-Irina Nicolae, Ambrish Rawat

Following the recent adoption of deep neural networks (DNN) accross a wide range of applications, adversarial attacks against these models have proven to be an indisputable threat.

L$^3$-SVMs: Landmarks-based Linear Local Support Vectors Machines

no code implementations1 Mar 2017 Valentina Zantedeschi, Rémi Emonet, Marc Sebban

For their ability to capture non-linearities in the data and to scale to large training sets, local Support Vector Machines (SVMs) have received a special attention during the past decade.
