Monotonic Classification google
Monotonic classification problems mean that both feature values and class labels are ordered and monotonicity relationships exist between some features and the decision label.

SceneFlowFields++ google
State-of-the-art scene flow algorithms pursue the conflicting targets of accuracy, run time, and robustness. With the successful concept of pixel-wise matching and sparse-to-dense interpolation, we push the limits of scene flow estimation. Avoiding strong assumptions on the domain or the problem yields a more robust algorithm. This algorithm is fast because we avoid explicit regularization during matching, which allows an efficient computation. Using image information from multiple time steps and explicit visibility prediction based on previous results, we achieve competitive performances on different data sets. Our contributions and results are evaluated in comparative experiments. Overall, we present an accurate scene flow algorithm that is faster and more generic than any individual benchmark leader. …

Multi-Task Graph Autoencoder google
We examine two fundamental tasks associated with graph representation learning: link prediction and node classification. We present a new autoencoder architecture capable of learning a joint representation of local graph structure and available node features for the simultaneous multi-task learning of unsupervised link prediction and semi-supervised node classification. Our simple, yet effective and versatile model is efficiently trained end-to-end in a single stage, whereas previous related deep graph embedding methods require multiple training steps that are difficult to optimize. We provide an empirical evaluation of our model on five benchmark relational, graph-structured datasets and demonstrate significant improvement over three strong baselines for graph representation learning. Reference code and data are available at https://…/graph-representation-learning

ADAM google
We introduce Adam, an algorithm for first-order gradient-based optimization of stochastic objective functions, based on adaptive estimates of lower-order moments. The method is straightforward to implement, is computationally efficient, has little memory requirements, is invariant to diagonal rescaling of the gradients, and is well suited for problems that are large in terms of data and/or parameters. The method is also appropriate for non-stationary objectives and problems with very noisy and/or sparse gradients. The hyper-parameters have intuitive interpretations and typically require little tuning. Some connections to related algorithms, on which Adam was inspired, are discussed. We also analyze the theoretical convergence properties of the algorithm and provide a regret bound on the convergence rate that is comparable to the best known results under the online convex optimization framework. Empirical results demonstrate that Adam works well in practice and compares favorably to other stochastic optimization methods. Finally, we discuss AdaMax, a variant of Adam based on the infinity norm.
