New book "Advances in Independent Component Analysis and Learning Machines"

The very latest advances in independent component analysis and machine learning

Advances in Independent Component Analysis and Learning Machines (Elsevier), edited by Ella Bingham, Samuel Kaski, Jorma Laaksonen and Jouko Lampinen, is collected in honour of Professor Erkki Oja, one of the pioneers of Independent Component Analysis (ICA). The book reviews recent advances in the theory and application of ICA, as well as its influence on signal processing, pattern recognition, machine learning, and data mining.

Examples of topics which have developed from the advances of ICA and machine learning, which are covered in the book are:

  • A unifying probabilistic model for PCA and ICA
  • Optimization methods for matrix decompositions
  • Insights into the FastICA algorithm
  • Unsupervised deep learning
  • Machine vision, and image and video retrieval

Greenhouse gas emissions from permafrost area larger than earlier estimated

Plant roots in soil stimulate microbial decomposition, a mechanism called the priming effect. A recent study published in Nature Geoscience shows that the priming effect alone can cause emission of 40 billion tonnes carbon from permafrost by 2100.
