Overview

- Supervised learning
- Unsupervised learning
- Graphical models
- Learning relational models

Thanks to Nir Friedman, Stuart Russell, Leslie Kaelbling andvarious web sources for letting me use many of their slides

Hypothesis spaces

- Decision trees
- Neural networks
- K-nearest neighbors
- Naïve Bayes classifier
- Support vector machines (SVMs)
- Boosted decision stumps
- …

Perceptron(neural net with no hidden layers)

Linearly separable data

Support Vector Machines (SVMs)

- Two key ideas:
- Large margins
- Kernel trick

Boosting

Simple classifiers (weak learners) can have their performanceboosted by taking weighted combinations

Boosting maximizes the margin

Supervised learning success stories

- Face detection
- Steering an autonomous car across the US
- Detecting credit card fraud
- Medical diagnosis
- …

Unsupervised learning

- What if there are no output labels?

K-means clustering

- Guess number of clusters, K
- Guess initial cluster centers, 1, 2
- Assign data points xi to nearest cluster center
- Re-compute cluster centers based on assignments

AutoClass (Cheeseman et al, 1986)

- EM algorithm for mixtures of Gaussians
- “Soft” version of K-means
- Uses Bayesian criterion to select K
- Discovered new types of stars from spectral data
- Discovered new classes of proteins and introns from DNA/protein sequence databases

PCA reduces the dimensionality of feature space by restricting attention to those directions along which the scatter of the cloud is greatest.

PCA seeks a projection that best represents the data in a least-squares sense.

.

Discovering rules (data mining)

Find the most frequent patterns (association rules)

Num in household = 1 ^ num children = 0 => language = English

Language = English ^ Income < $40k ^ Married = false ^num children = 0 => education {college, grad school}

Unsupervised learning: summary

- Clustering
- Hierarchical clustering
- Linear dimensionality reduction (PCA)
- Non-linear dim. Reduction
- Learning rules

Networks in biology

- Most processes in the cell are controlled by networks of interacting molecules:
- Metabolic Network
- Signal Transduction Networks
- Regulatory Networks
- Networks can be modeled at multiple levels of detail/ realism
- Molecular level
- Concentration level
- Qualitative level

Decreasing detail

Molecular level: Lysis-Lysogeny circuit in Lambda phage

Arkin et al. (1998), Genetics 149(4):1633-48

- 5 genes, 67 parameters based on 50 years of research
- Stochastic simulation required supercomputer

Probabilistic graphical models

- Supports graph-based modeling at various levels of detail
- Models can be learned from noisy, partial data
- Can model “inherently” stochastic phenomena, e.g., molecular-level fluctuations…
- But can also model deterministic, causal processes.

"The actual science of logic is conversant at present only with things either certain, impossible, or entirely doubtful. Therefore the true logic for this world is the calculus of probabilities."

-- James Clerk Maxwell

"Probability theory is nothing but common sense reduced to

calculation." -- Pierre Simon Laplace

Graphical models: outline

- Inference
- Structure learning

Y

“Learning” = estimatingparameters , , from(x,y) pairs.

Is the empirical mean

Y

Probabilistic graphical model for piecewise linear regressioninput

- Hidden variable Q chooses which set ofparameters to use for predicting Y.

- Value of Q depends on value of input X.

- This is an example of “mixtures of experts”

output

Learning is harder because Q is hidden, so we don’t know whichdata points to assign to each line; can be solved with EM (c.f., K-means)

Qualitative part:

Many difference inference algorithms,both exact and approximate

Bayesian inference

- Bayesian probability treats parameters as random variables
- Learning/ parameter estimation is replaced by probabilistic inference P(|D)
- Example: Bayesian linear regression; parameters are = (, , )

Parameters are tied (shared)across repetitions of the data

Bayesian inference

- + Elegant – no distinction between parameters and other hidden variables
- + Can use priors to learn from small data sets (c.f., one-shot learning by humans)
- - Math can get hairy
- - Often computationally intractable

Increases the number of parameters to be estimated

Wrong assumptions about domain structure

Cannot be compensated for by fitting parameters

Search for a structure that maximizes the score

Learning Trees

- Can find optimal tree structure in O(n2 log n) time: just find the max-weight spanning tree
- If some of the variables are hidden, problem becomes hard again, but can use EM to fit mixtures of trees

Heuristic Search

- Learning arbitrary graph structure is NP-hard.So it is common to resort to heuristic search
- Define a search space:
- search states are possible structures
- operators make small changes to structure
- Traverse space looking for high-scoring structures
- Search techniques:
- Greedy hill-climbing
- Best first search
- Simulated Annealing
- ...

Problems with local search IIPicking a single best model can be misleading

- Small sample size many high scoring models
- Answer based on one model often useless
- Want features common to many models

Bayesian Approach to Structure Learning

- Posterior distribution over structures
- Estimate probability of features
- Edge XY
- Path X… Y
- …

Feature of G,

e.g., XY

Bayesian approach: computational issues

- Posterior distribution over structures

How compute sum over super-exponential number of graphs?

- MCMC over networks
- MCMC over node-orderings (Rao-Blackwellisation)

Structure learning: other issues

- Discovering latent variables
- Learning causal models
- Learning from interventional data
- Active learning

Discovering latent variables

a) 17 parameters

b) 59 parameters

There are some techniques for automatically detecting thepossible presence of latent variables

Learning causal models

- So far, we have only assumed that X -> Y -> Z means that Z is independent of X given Y.
- However, we often want to interpret directed arrows causally.
- This is uncontroversial for the arrow of time.
- But can we infer causality from static observational data?

Learning causal models

- We can infer causality from static observational data if we have at least four measured variables and certain “tetrad” conditions hold.
- See books by Pearl and Spirtes et al.
- However, we can only learn up to Markov equivalence, not matter how much data we have.

Learning from interventional data

- The only way to distinguish between Markov equivalent networks is to perform interventions, e.g., gene knockouts.
- We need to (slightly) modify our learning algorithms.

Active learning

- Which experiments (interventions) should we perform to learn structure as efficiently as possible?
- This problem can be modeled using decision theory.
- Exact solutions are wildly computationally intractable.
- Can we come up with good approximate decision making techniques?
- Can we implement hardware to automatically perform the experiments?
- “AB: Automated Biologist”

Learning from relational data

Can we learn concepts from a set of relations between objects,instead of/ in addition to just their attributes?

Learning from relational data: approaches

- Probabilistic relational models (PRMs)
- Reify a relationship (arcs) between nodes (objects) by making into a node (hypergraph)
- Inductive Logic Programming (ILP)
- Top-down, e.g., FOIL (generalization of C4.5)
- Bottom up, e.g., PROGOL (inverse deduction)

ILP for learning protein folding: input

yes

no

TotalLength(D2mhr, 118) ^ NumberHelices(D2mhr, 6) ^ …

100 conjuncts describing structure of each pos/neg example

ILP for learning protein folding: results

- PROGOL learned the following rule to predict if a protein will form a “four-helical up-and-down bundle”:
- In English: “The protein P folds if it contains a long helix h1 at a secondary structure position between 1 and 3 and h1 is next to a second helix”

ILP: Pros and Cons

- + Can discover new predicates (concepts) automatically
- + Can learn relational models from relational (or flat) data
- - Computationally intractable
- - Poor handling of noise

+ Predictive power

General lessons from SVM success:

- Kernel trick can be used to make many linear methods non-linear e.g., kernel PCA, kernelized mutual information

- Large margin classifiers are good

Boosting: summary

- Can boost any weak learner
- Most commonly: boosted decision “stumps”

+ Handles mixed variables

+ Handles missing data

+ Efficient for large data sets

+ Handles irrelevant attributes

- Easy to understand

+ Predictive power

Supervised learning: summary

- Learn mapping F from inputs to outputs using a training set of (x,t) pairs
- F can be drawn from different hypothesis spaces, e.g., decision trees, linear separators, linear in high dimensions, mixtures of linear
- Algorithms offer a variety of tradeoffs
- Many good books, e.g.,
- “The elements of statistical learning”,Hastie, Tibshirani, Friedman, 2001
- “Pattern classification”, Duda, Hart, Stork, 2001

Assumption needed to makelearning work

- We need to assume “Future futures will resemble past futures” (B. Russell)
- Unlearnable hypothesis: “All emeralds are grue”, where “grue” means:green if observed before time t, blue afterwards.
