STSW01 - Theoretical and algorithmic underpinnings of Big Data The past decade of research on matrix completion has shown it is possible to leverage linear dependencies to impute missing values in a low-rank matrix. However, the corresponding assumption that the data lies in or near a low-dimensional linear subspace is not always met in practice. Extending matrix completion theory and algorithms to exploit low-dimensional nonlinear structure in data will allow missing data imputation in a far richer class of problems. In this talk, I will describe several models of low-dimensional nonlinear structure and how these models can be used for matrix completion. In particular, we will explore matrix completion in the context of three different nonlinear models: single index models, in which a latent subspace model is transformed by a nonlinear mapping; unions of subspaces, in which data points lie in or near one of several subspaces; and nonlinear algebraic varieties, a polynomial generalization of classical linear subspaces. In these settings, we will explore novel and efficient algorithms for imputing missing values and new bounds on the amount of missing data that can be accurately imputed. The proposed algorithms are able to recover synthetically generated data up to predicted sample complexity bounds and outperform standard low-rank matrix completion in experiments with real recommender system and motion capture data.
