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).

  • 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
