Tensor Learning Unit
We study various tensorbased machine learning technologies, e.g., tensor decomposition, multilinear latent variable model, tensor regression and classification, tensor networks, deep tensor learning, and Bayesian tensor learning, with aim to facilitate the learning from highorder structured data or largescale latent space. Our goal is to develop innovative, scalable and efficient tensor learning algorithms supported by theoretical principles. The novel applications in computer vision and brain data analysis will also be explored to provide new insights into tensor learning methods.
