Low-dimensional Representations Lab

This lab is developing methodologies that extract and exploit latent, low-dimensional structure when learning predictive models from high-dimensional data sources. The lab brings together tools from probability and statistics, geometry, topology, and computer science to study techniques such as variable selection, graphical modeling, classification, dimensionality reduction, matrix estimation, and manifold learning in concert with other projects and labs in CPCP.
