Subject [jira] [Commented] (MAHOUT-836) On donating my Robust PCA Java code to Mahout
Date Wed, 26 Oct 2011 17:47:34 GMT


Olivier Grisel commented on MAHOUT-836:

As explained in Sujit's blog post, RPCA is minimizing an objective function that combines
the nuclear norm of a dense low-rank approximation of the data + the L_1 norm of a sparse
additive noise matrix.

As a complement to this blog post, here is a very interesting tutorial by Emmanuel Candes
here (the RPCA part starts around the middle of the presentation, min 38):

> Hi All,
> I have an implementation of Robust PCA (a.k.a low rank and sparse decomposition) in Java
which I would like to donate to Mahout. I am a MATLAB expert, comfortable with C++ and have
just started with Java. I am completely new to Mahout but am very excited to participate and
> I have tested my code exhaustively and there does not seem to be any issues. The results
are very good but the code definitely needs some optimization. 
> Please let me know if there is interest. 
> Thanks,
> Sujit
