1 Generalizing Backpropagation to Include Sparse Coding David M. Bradley and Drew Bagnell Robotics Institute Carnegie Mellon University

2 Outline Discuss value of modular and deep gradient based systems, especially in robotics Introduce a new and useful family of modules Properties of new family –Online training with non-gaussian priors E.g. encourage sparsity, multi-task weight sharing –Modules internally solve continuous optimization problems Captures interesting nonlinear effects such as inhibition that involve coupled outputs Sparse Approximation –Modules can be jointly optimized by a generalization of backpropagation

3 Deep Modular Learning systems Efficiently represent complex functions –Particularly efficient for closely related tasks Recently shown to be powerful learning machines –Greedy layer-wise training improves initialization Greedy module-wise training is useful for designing complex systems –Design and Initialize modules independently –Jointly optimize the final system with backpropagation Gradient methods allow the incorporation of diverse data sources and losses Y.

7 New Modules Modules that are important in this system require two new abilities –Induce new priors on weights –Allow modules to solve internal optimization problems

8 Standard Backpropagation assumes L2 prior Gradient descent with convex loss functions: Small steps with early stopping imply L 2 regularization –Minimizes a regret bound by solving the optimization: –Which bounds the true regret M.

26 Main Points Modular, gradient based systems are an important design tool for large scale learning systems Need new tools to include a family of modules that have important properties Presented a generalized backpropagation technique that –Allow priors that encourage, e.g. sparsity (KL prior): uses mirror descent to modify weights –Uses implicit differentiation to compute gradients through modules (e.g. sparse approximation) that internally solve optimization Demonstrated work-in-progress on building deep, sparse coders using generalized backpropagation
