EM algorithm for GTM-FS

Dharmesh M. Maniyar, Ian T. Nabney

Research output: Preprint or Working paperTechnical report


We propose a generative topographic mapping (GTM) based data visualization with simultaneous feature selection (GTM-FS) approach which not only provides a better visualization by modeling irrelevant features ("noise") using a separate shared distribution but also gives a saliency value for each feature which helps the user to assess their significance. This technical report presents a varient of the Expectation-Maximization (EM) algorithm for GTM-FS.
