Deep Dimension Reduction for Supervised Representation Learning

06/10/2020 ∙ by Jian Huang, et al. ∙ 37

The success of deep supervised learning depends on its automatic data representation abilities. Among all the characteristics of an ideal representation for high-dimensional complex data, information preservation, low dimensionality and disentanglement are the most essential ones. In this work, we propose a deep dimension reduction (DDR) approach to achieving a good data representation with these characteristics for supervised learning. At the population level, we formulate the ideal representation learning task as finding a nonlinear dimension reduction map that minimizes the sum of losses characterizing conditional independence and disentanglement. We estimate the target map at the sample level nonparametrically with deep neural networks. We derive a bound on the excess risk of the deep nonparametric estimator. The proposed method is validated via comprehensive numerical experiments and real data analysis in the context of regression and classification.
