Abstract
We consider machine learning techniques to develop lowlatency approximate solutions for a class of inverse problems. More precisely, we use a probabilistic approach to the problem of recovering sparse stochastic signals that are members of the lpballs. In this context, we analyze the Bayesian meansquareerror (MSE) for two types of estimators: (i) a linear estimator and (ii) a structured estimator composed of a linear operator followed by a Cartesian product of univariate nonlinear mappings. By construction, the complexity of the proposed nonlinear estimator is comparable to that of its linear counterpart since the nonlinear mapping can be implemented efficiently in hardware by means of lookup tables (LUTs). The proposed structure lends itself to neural networks and iterative shrinkage/thresholdingtype algorithms restricted to a single iteration (e.g. due to imposed hardware or latency constraints). By resorting to an alternating minimization technique, we obtain a sequence of optimized linear operators and nonlinear mappings that converge in the MSE objective. The result is attractive for realtime applications where general iterative and convex optimization methods are infeasible.
