Title:  Semi-supervised Low-rank Approximation, from variational methods to deep learning

Abstract:  Low-Rank Approximations can be understood as a class of inverse problems when the input data is a matrix or a tensor. They have been in particular used extensively in the context of blind source separation/pattern mining, when little or no side information on the patterns to extract is available.

However, in many practical applications of LRA, such additional information is available, and can be used to inform the algorithms and improve performances. I will call such models Semi-Supervised LRA. After introducing LRA, in this presentation I will explore existing literature on SSLRA, showing that it bridges the gap between traditional unsupervised variational methods, and recent deep learning supervised models. Through this presentation, it will be made clear that SSLRA actually covers a wide range of models, e.g. when labels, priors, generative modes or denoisers are known, and is a fast evolving topic with lots of opportunities for both theoretical and practical contributions.
