High-dimensional data generated by a system with limited degrees of freedom are often constrained in low-dimensional manifolds in the original space. In this article, we investigate dimension-reduction methods for such intrinsically low-dimensional data through linear projections that preserve the manifold structure of the data. For intrinsically one-dimensional data, this implies projecting to a curve on the plane with as few intersections as possible. We are proposing a supervised projection pursuit method that can be regarded as an extension of the single-index model for nonparametric regression. We show results from a toy and two robotic applications. [less ▲]

A basic element in most independent component analysis (ICA) algorithms is the choice of a model for the score functions of the unknown sources. While this is usually based on approximations, for large data sets it is possible to achieve "source adaptivity" by directly estimating from the data the "'true" score functions of the sources. In this paper we describe an efficient scheme for achieving this by extending the fast density estimation method of Silverman (1982), We show with a real and a synthetic experiment that our method can provide more accurate solutions than state-of-the-art methods when optimization is carried out in the vicinity of the global minimum of the contrast function.

In this paper we present a method for an appearance-based modeling of the environment of a mobile robot. We describe the task (localization of the robot) in a probabilistic framework. Linear image features are extracted using a Principal Component Analysis. The appearance model is represented as a probability density function of the image feature vector given the location of the robot. We estimate this density model from the data with a kernel estimation method. We show how the parameters of the model influence the localization performance. We also study how many features and which features are needed for good localization. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved. [less ▲]

We are seeking linear projections of supervised high-dimensional robot observations and an appropriate environment model that optimize the robot localization task. We show that an appropriate risk function to minimize is the conditional entropy of the robot positions given the projected observations. We propose a method of iterative optimization through a probabilistic model based on kernel smoothing. To obtain good starting optimization solutions we use canonical correlation analysis. We apply our method on a real experiment involving a mobile robot equipped with an omnidirectional camera in an office setup. [less ▲]
