Facets Overview google
Overview gives a high-level view of one or more data sets. It produces a visual feature-by-feature statistical analysis, and can also be used to compare statistics across two or more data sets. The tool can process both numeric and string features, including multiple instances of a number or string per feature.
Overview can help uncover issues with datasets, including the following:
• Unexpected feature values
• Missing feature values for a large number of examples
• Training/serving skew
• Training/test/validation set skew
Key aspects of the visualization are outlier detection and distribution comparison across multiple datasets. Interesting values (such as a high proportion of missing data, or very different distributions of a feature across multiple datasets) are highlighted in red. Features can be sorted by values of interest such as the number of missing values or the skew between the different datasets. …

Intensive Principal Component Analysis (InPCA) google
Unsupervised learning makes manifest the underlying structure of data without curated training and specific problem definitions. However, the inference of relationships between data points is frustrated by the `curse of dimensionality’ in high-dimensions. Inspired by replica theory from statistical mechanics, we consider replicas of the system to tune the dimensionality and take the limit as the number of replicas goes to zero. The result is the intensive embedding, which is not only isometric (preserving local distances) but allows global structure to be more transparently visualized. We develop the Intensive Principal Component Analysis (InPCA) and demonstrate clear improvements in visualizations of the Ising model of magnetic spins, a neural network, and the dark energy cold dark matter ({\Lambda}CDM) model as applied to the Cosmic Microwave Background. …

Dynamic Graph Convolutional Networks google
Many different classification tasks need to manage structured data, which are usually modeled as graphs. Moreover, these graphs can be dynamic, meaning that the vertices/edges of each graph may change during time. Our goal is to jointly exploit structured data and temporal information through the use of a neural network model. To the best of our knowledge, this task has not been addressed using these kind of architectures. For this reason, we propose two novel approaches, which combine Long Short-Term Memory networks and Graph Convolutional Networks to learn long short-term dependencies together with graph structure. The quality of our methods is confirmed by the promising results achieved. …

SimpNet google
Major winning Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs), such as VGGNet, ResNet, DenseNet, \etc, include tens to hundreds of millions of parameters, which impose considerable computation and memory overheads. This limits their practical usage in training and optimizing for real-world applications. On the contrary, light-weight architectures, such as SqueezeNet, are being proposed to address this issue. However, they mainly suffer from low accuracy, as they have compromised between the processing power and efficiency. These inefficiencies mostly stem from following an ad-hoc designing procedure. In this work, we discuss and propose several crucial design principles for an efficient architecture design and elaborate intuitions concerning different aspects of the design procedure. Furthermore, we introduce a new layer called {\it SAF-pooling} to improve the generalization power of the network while keeping it simple by choosing best features. Based on such principles, we propose a simple architecture called {\it SimpNet}. We empirically show that SimpNet provides a good trade-off between the computation/memory efficiency and the accuracy solely based on these primitive but crucial principles. SimpNet outperforms the deeper and more complex architectures such as VGGNet, ResNet, WideResidualNet \etc, on several well-known benchmarks, while having 2 to 25 times fewer number of parameters and operations. We obtain state-of-the-art results (in terms of a balance between the accuracy and the number of involved parameters) on standard datasets, such as CIFAR10, CIFAR100, MNIST and SVHN.
