Deep image prior: the untold stories


Abstract

Deep image prior (DIP) parametrizes visual objects as deep neural networks (DNNs). This stunningly simple idea has matched or even beaten the state-of-the-art methods on numerous visual reconstruction tasks, although not driven by massive amounts of training data. Despite the remarkable successes, the overparametrized DNNs used are typically powerful enough to also fit the noise besides the desired visual contents (i.e., overfitting), and the fitting process can take up to tens of minutes on sophisticated GPU cards to converge to a reasonable solution. In this talk, I’ll describe our recent efforts to combat these practicality issues around DIP, and how careful calibration of DIP models (or variants) can help to solve challenging visual reconstruction problems, such as blind image deblurring, in unprecedented regimes.


This is a joint work with my PhD students: Taihui Li, Hengkang Wang, Zhong Zhuang, Hengyue Liang, Le Peng, and Tiancong Chen.

Algorithmic Robustness in Classification


Abstract

Learning linear classifiers (i.e. halfspaces) is one of the fundamental problems in machine learning dating back to 1950s. In the presence of benign label noise such as random classification noise, the problem is well understood. However, when the data are corrupted by more realistic noise, even establishing polynomial-time learnability can be nontrivial. In this talk, I will introduce our recent work on learning with Massart that significantly advances the state of the art. In particular, for the Massart noise where each label is flipped with an unknown probability across the domain, we present the first polynomial-time algorithm that is robust to any noise rate < 1/2. The developed algorithm is active in nature, and is nearly label-optimal. Finally, I will discuss some important directions such as list-decodable classification, where the majority of the data are contaminated.

Robust Learning Overparameterized Models without Overfitting: Implicit Bias and Subgradient Methods


Abstract

Overparameterization, having more model parameters than the data, has recent;u been shown to be beneficial to the dominating performance of many machine learning tasks, such as low-rank matrix recovery and deep learning. However, overparameterization can lead to overfitting issues, especially when corruption presents. In this talk, I will present two methods for effectively dealing with overfitting: double overparameterization and subgradient methods with diminishing stepsizes. As illustrative examples, we will introduce the ideas on robust recovery of low-rank matrices from linear measurements, with no prior knowledge on the intrinsic rank. Moreover, empirically we show that the proposed approaches can also effectively learn robust deep image prior (DIP), that we can achieve robust recovery of natural images by over-parameterizing images with deep convolutional networks without overfitting. Finally, I will discuss the generality of these methods beyond the robust matrix recovery and DIP.

Geometric Analysis of Neural Collapse with Unconstrained Features


Abstract

Neural collapse is an intriguing empirical phenomenon that Papyan, Han, and Donoho recently discovered. This phenomenon implies that (i) the class means and the last-layer classifiers all collapse to the vertices of a Simplex Equiangular Tight Frame (ETF) up to scaling, and (ii) cross-example within-class variability of last-layer activations collapses to zero. In this talk, we will study the problem based on a simplified unconstrained feature model. In this context, we show that the classical cross-entropy loss with weight decay has a benign global landscape, in the sense that the only global minimizers are the Simplex ETFs while all other critical points are strict saddles whose Hessian exhibit negative curvature directions. We also exploit these findings to improve training efficiency: we can set the feature dimension equal to the number of classes and fix the last-layer classifier to be a Simplex ETF for network training, reducing memory cost by over 20% on ResNet18 without sacrificing the generalization performance. We will also discuss similar results for the mean squared error (MSE) loss. (Joint work with Tianyu Ding, Xiao Li, Qing Qu, Jeremias Sulam, Chong You, and Jinxin Zhou.)

A Resilience-Oriented Centralised-to-Decentralised Framework Design for Networked Microgrids Control and Management


Abstract

The energy source has been transforming from traditional fossil fuel-based power generations to distributed energy resources (DERs) driven by the development of low/zero-carbon societies. The increasing DERs, using the concept of microgrid (MG) provide more operational flexibilitycompared to the traditional centralised supply from the main grid, especially in terms of enhancing the resilience of power systems, e.g., Sendai MG and Roppongi Hills MG in response to the Great East Japan Earthquake, 2011. However, the management of growing DERs leads to a cyber-physical fusion of MG systems and increases the complexity of implementing information and communication infrastructure, which suffers from cyber-layer faults and attacks. For this reason, a resilience-oriented centralised-to-decentralised framework in response to cyber-physical contingencies is discussed here. In such a centralised-to-decentralised framework, the cyber-physical response, i.e., emergency MGs and dynamic device-to-device (D2D) communication, is pre-scheduled in the centralised controller and allocated to the local controllers for timely contingency response. The pre-scheduled D2D communication quantitatively optimises the non-negligible delays and guides the control law design.

Equivalent Modelling of Wind Farms for Probabilistic Harmonic Propagation Studies


Abstract

Decarbonisation requires increasing penetration of renewable energy sources into the electric power system. Such trend results in several challenges in power systems, among which we consider the problem of power system harmonic distortions that results in significant financial losses to both network operators and end users. To confront this problem, we firstly developed an equivalent model of wind farms (WFs) for probabilistic harmonic propagation and mitigation studies in power electronics (PE) rich transmission networks. Moreover, for the first time, we proposed the appropriate modelling ranges and distributions of the equivalent model parameters and then validated the equivalent model of the wind farms based on field measurements at the PCC bus. The proposed model has the potential of being used in large transmission or distribution system probabilistic harmonic propagation studies with higher efficiency and confidence to identify potential harmonic issues in the power electronics rich networks. If those issues are identified, detailed modelling of individual plant and network conditions is required for harmonic mitigation. However, in such cases the extent of network modelling can be substantially reduced.

Machine Learning Meets Robotics


Abstract

Machine learning (ML) is opening new opportunities in virtually all industries, plus making frequently used equipment more capable. Not surprisingly, machine learning is often applied to robots for improving their capability. This is because machine learning allows robots to learn from mistakes and adapt themselves in new environment and applications. Like human being gets smarter through experience, robotics applications may have the same ability through using machine learning. In this presentation, we will explore how machine learning is used in precision remote sensing (ML meets UAV), in autonomous robots (ML meets autonomous driving), in healthcare and wellbeing (ML meets computer vision), in decarbonisation and sustainability (ML meets electric vehicles), etc.

基于深度学习的光电器件缺陷评估模型


摘要

设备缺陷检测算法已在光电器件生产领域中广泛替代人工肉眼检测。然而,传统基于深度学习的光电器件缺陷检测方法仅着眼于器件本身的硬(物理)缺陷检测,缺乏对器件软缺陷(如器件参数不达标)的检测手段。同时,现有检测算法未能建立器件硬/软缺陷的完整评估模型,缺乏对缺陷产生机理的探究,难以通过缺陷检测结果来优化器件生产过程。本报告从光电器件生产的基本过程开始,逐一介绍各过程的重要性能参数,建立基于事件的参数关联算法,充分挖掘各参数与缺陷之间的对应关系。同时,基于多层感知神经网络和卷积神经网络,结合产品性能指标,设计产品缺陷预测算法,并将缺陷预测与外部资源、环境因素、客户需求、社会经济因素等有机整合,从而构建基于生产过程的缺陷评估模型,以实现按需优化的光电器件生产。
