@IgorCarron blogs recent applications of compressive sensing and matrix factorisation every week. (Compressive sensing solves underdetermined systems of equations, for example trying to fill in missing data, by L₁-norm minimisation.) This week: reverse-engineering biochemical pathways and complex systems analysis. (Source: … Continue reading
