Feature Dimensionality Reduction with Variational Autoencoders in Deep Bayesian Active Learning

Data annotation for training of supervised learning algorithms has been a very costly procedure. The aim of deep active learning methodologies is to acquire the highest performance in supervised deep learning models by annotating as few data points as possible. As the feature space of data grows, the application of linear models in active learning settings has become insufficient. Therefore, Deep Bayesian Active Learning methodology which represents model uncertainty has been widely studied. In this paper, a study has been conducted in order to increase the performance of Deep Bayesian Active Learning method. Feature dimensionality reduction is performed on data set by using Variational Autoencoder model. Low dimensional data is used to train a Bayesian Multi Layer Perceptron. The proposed method outperformed the Bayesian Multi Layer Perceptron model which is trained on entire feature space in terms of accuracy performance. The accuracy of the proposed method is tested on baseline datasets.

Deep Learning-Based Hybrid Approach for Phase Retrieval
IŞIL, ÇAĞATAY; Öktem, Sevinç Figen; KOÇ, AYKUT (2019-06-24)
We develop a phase retrieval algorithm that utilizes the hybrid-input-output (HIO) algorithm with a deep neural network (DNN). The DNN architecture, which is trained to remove the artifacts of HIO, is used iteratively with HIO to improve the reconstructions. The results demonstrate the effectiveness of the approach with little additional cost.

In this work, we have proposed a new method and ready to use workflow to extract simplified rule sets for a given Machine Learning (ML) model trained on a classifi- cation task. Those rules are both human readable and in the form of software code pieces thanks to the syntax of Python programming language. We have inspired from the power of Shapley Values as our source of truth to select most prominent features for our rule sets. The aim of this work to select the key interval points in given data in order t...
Cross-modal Representation Learning with Nonlinear Dimensionality Reduction
KAYA, SEMİH; Vural, Elif (2019-08-22)
In many problems in machine learning there exist relations between data collections from different modalities. The purpose of multi-modal learning algorithms is to efficiently use the information present in different modalities when solving multi-modal retrieval problems. In this work, a multi-modal representation learning algorithm is proposed, which is based on nonlinear dimensionality reduction. Compared to linear dimensionality reduction methods, nonlinear methods provide more flexible representations e...

Besbinar, Beril; Alatan, Abdullah Aydın (2016-05-19)
Deep learning is the discipline of training computational models that are composed of multiple layers and these methods have recently improved the state of the art in many areas as a virtue of large labeled datasets, increase in the computational power of current hardware and unsupervised training methods. Although such a dataset may not be available for lots of application areas, the representations obtained by the well-designed networks that have a large representation capacity and trained with enough dat...
Feature enhancement with deep generative models in deep bayesian active learning
Duymuş, Pınar Ezgi; Ertekin Bolelli, Şeyda; Department of Computer Engineering (2022-9)
Data-intensive models emerge as new advances in Deep Learning take place. However, access to annotated datasets with many data points is not constantly prevalent. This situation emphasizes the need for Active Learning to select the least possible amount of data without compromising the accuracy of the classifier models. Recent advancements occur in Deep Bayesian Active Learning (DBAL), which means incorporating uncertainty of model parameters into a Deep Network. In this work, we present an algorithm that i...
