Lifting the curse of dimensionality for statistics in ML

The paper “Beyond Smoothness: Incorporating Low-Rank Analysis into Nonparametric Density Estimation” by BIFOLD researcher Dr. Robert A. Vandermeulen and his colleague Dr. Antoine Ledent, Technical University Kaiserslautern, was presented at the Conference on Neural Information Processing Systems (NeurIPS 2021). Their paper provides the first solid theoretical foundations for applying low-rank methods to nonparametric density estimation.
