Talk Title: Oracle Inequalities for $\Theta$-estimators (关于$\Theta$-估计量的甲骨文不等式)

Abstract: Due to the explosion of large-scale datasets in statistical applications, people often favor first-order optimization methods to obtain an estimator in complex learning tasks. This talk performs statistical analysis of a class of thresholding (denoted by $\Theta$) based estimators defined in this way. They can be associated with a wide family of sparsity-inducing penalties but do not guarantee local optimality. Oracle inequalities are shown to provide nearly minimax rate optimality of $\Theta$-estimators under various conditions. We also prove that the sequence of iterates can decay to the desired statistical accuracy geometrically fast. Our results reveal different benefits brought by convex and nonconvex types of shrinkage.


题目: Analysis and Experimental Designs for Determing Benchmark Dosages with Multiple Endpoints and Multiple Stressors

报告人:Dr. Edward Boone


Toxicologists are often faced with determining the amount of a substance or stressor that a person may be exposed to before adverse effects happen on some health outcomes (endpoints).  Traditional methodology uses a univariate approach with a single chemical at a time.  In this work we consider not only multiple stressors but also multiple endpoints to determine a benchmark dose tolerable region for the combination of stressors that simultaneously considers all endpoints.  In addition develop and criterion for determining which endpoints are more sensitive than others.  Due to the complexity of the question we also explore various experimental design criteria for follow up experimentation.

题目: Dimension reduction based on the Hellinger integral

报告人:Dr. Qin Wang


Sufficient dimension reduction (SDR) is a useful tool to study the dependence between a response and a multidimensional predictor. A new formulation is proposed based on the Hellinger integral of order two, introduced as a natural measure of the regression information contained in a predictor subspace. The response may be either continuous or discrete. The link between local and global central subspaces is established. Relative to existing methods, its overall performance is broadly comparable. Computationally, it is very efficient, allowing larger problems to be tackled. (This is a joint work with Prof. Xiangrong Yin at The University of Kentucky and Prof. Frank Critchley at The Open University of UK.)
