  Population Health - Division of Biostatistics:   Statistical and Computational Tradeoffs in Biconvex Optimization --- "In statistics and machine learning, many optimization problems are biconvex in the sense that the objective function is convex in one parameter when another parameter is fixed, while it is not jointly convex in both parameters. Alternatively updating algorithms have been widely used to provide tractable approximation of this non-convex optimization problem. In this talk, I will discuss a thorough convergence analysis of the biconvex optimization. In particular, we show that the alternatively updating algorithm converges at a geometric rate and then provide concrete characterizations of the tradeoffs between the computational and statistical aspects. We further demonstrate the applicability of our theoretical analysis to two biconvex tasks: (1) joint clustering and network estimation, and (2) high-dimensional bigraphical model estimation." , Wei Sun Ph.D. Candidate Purdue University Indiana , 11:00 AM, 650 First Avenue, 5th Floor Conference Room - Contact Bernice Townsend at 212-263-0363 or at Bernice.Townsend@nyumc.org

  NYU Langone Medical Center Public:   Announcement: Lectures on Analysis of Neuroimaging Data (LAND) --- "From Pixels to Brain Networks: Modeling Brain Connectivity and Its Changes in Disease Polina Golland, Ph.D. Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Massachusetts Institute of Technology We propose a novel probabilistic framework to model connectivity patterns in the brain as a latent network graph. In particular, we model the interaction between latent anatomical and functional connectivity and present an intuitive extension to population studies. The method simultaneously infers the templates of latent connectivity for each population and the differences in connectivity between the groups. We also develop an approach to identify foci of a neurological disorder based on anatomical and functional connectivity information. Specifically, we formulate a generative model that characterizes the network of abnormal functional connectivity emanating from the affected nodes. We demonstrate our methods on a schizophrenia study. Our model identifies significant increases in functional connectivity between the parietal/posterior cingulate region and the frontal lobe and reduced functional connectivity between the parietal/posterior cingulate region and the temporal lobe in schizophrenia. Joint work with Archana Venkataraman, Marek Kubicki, Carl-Fredrik Westin." , Polina Golland, Ph.D. Associate Professor Massachusetts Institute of Technology http://www.med.nyu.edu/neuroscience/lectures-analysis-neuroimaging-data-land-1?width=600px&height=400px&inline=true , 4:00 PM, One Park Ave, 7th Floor - "Central Park" RSVP required for all non-NYU attendees to Cielo.Diaz@nyumc.org - Contact Cielo Diaz at 646-754-5195 or at Cielo.Diaz@nyumc.org
