Iteratively Reweighted Group Lasso based on Log-composite Regularization

This paper addresses supervised learning problems with structured sparsity, where subsets of model coefficients form distinct groups. We introduce a novel log-composite regularizer in a bi-criteria optimization problem together with a loss (e.g., least squares) in order to reconstruct the desired group sparsity structure. We develop an iteratively reweighted algorithm that solves the group LASSO … Read more

On iteratively reweighted Algorithms for Non-smooth Non-convex Optimization in Computer Vision

Natural image statistics indicate that we should use non-convex norms for most regularization tasks in image processing and computer vision. Still, they are rarely used in practice due to the challenge of optimization. Recently, iteratively reweighed $\ell_1$ minimization (IRL1) has been proposed as a way to tackle a class of non-convex functions by solving a … Read more
