“Sparse Sampling and Learning on Graphs”

Abstract : Ubiquitous sensors generate prohibitively large datasets. Large volumes of data that we collect nowadays are complex in nature as they are collected on manifolds, irregular domains, networks, or point clouds. Extending classical signal processing concepts and tools to represent, interpret, and analyze signals defined on irregular graph domains is an emerging area of research known as graph signal processing.
In this talk, to begin with, we present near-optimal greedy methods to sparsely sample signals defined over irregular graph domains. We discuss how the underlying geometrical structure of the domain on which the data is defined can be exploited for sampling.
Most of the graph signal processing algorithms assume that the graph is given or can be appropriately defined. For scenarios where there is no initial graph available or we desire to modify a known graph as new data becomes available, we present methods to learn a sparse graph that best explains the available data. Using the observations recorded at a single node and a known excitation signal, algebraic algorithms to estimate the graph structure will be presented.
