Workshop on Sparsity

Interdisciplinary Workshop on Sparsity and Modern Mathematical Methods for High Dimensional Data, April 6--10, 2010, Brussels, Belgium. Link


Christine De Mol (ULB Math/Ecares and VUB CAMP), "Catching features with a lasso or an elastic net?", Monday February 22, 2010, 16h00, in: 6G324, VUB, Brussels, Belgium.
I will describe feature selection methods based on penalized regression, and in particular the "lasso" (L1 penalty) and the "elastic net" (combined L1 and L2 penalty). I will summarize the theoretical background in the framework of learning theory and focus on two specific applications: face detection in computer vision and gene selection in bioinformatics.
