Title: Subspace Clustering – Recent Advances
Speaker: Zhouchen Lin (林宙辰)
Abstract: Nowadays we are in the big data era, where the data is usually high dimensional. How to process high dimensional data effectively is a critical issue. Fortunately, we observe that data usually distribute near low dimensional manifolds. Mixture of subspaces is a simple yet effective model to represent high dimensional data, where the membership of the data points to the subspaces might be unknown. Therefore, there is a need to simultaneously cluster the data into multiple subspaces and find a low-dimensional subspace fitting each group of data points. This problem, known as subspace clustering, has found numerous applications. In this talk, I will present my recent work on this research problem.
