  2. A brief introduction to my research interest optimization and control in networked multi-agent systems autonomous agents - collect data - process data - communicate problem: how to efficiently accomplish in-network optimization and control tasks through collaboration of agents?

  3. Large-scale wireless sensor networks: decentralized signal processing, node localization, sensor selection … blind anchor how to localize blinds with anchors? how to fuse big sensory data? e.g. structural health monitoring difficulty in data transmission → decentralized optimization without any fusion center how to assign sensors to targets?

  4. Computer/server networks with big data: collaborative data mining new challenges in the big data era - big data is stored in distributed computers/servers - data transmission is prohibited due to bandwidth/privacy/… - computers/servers collaborate to do data mining distributed/decentralized optimization

  8. Outline • Background • decentralized jointly sparse optimization with applications • Roadmap • nonconvex versus convex, difficulty in decentralized computing • Algorithm development • successive linearization, inexact average consensus • Simulation and conclusion

  9. Background (I): jointly sparse optimization • Structured signals • A sparse signal: only few elements are nonzero • Jointly sparse signals: sparse, with the same nonzero supports zeros nonzeros • Jointly sparse optimization: to recover X from linear measurements measurement matrix measurement noise

  10. Background (II): decentralized jointly sparse optimization • Decentralized computing in a network • Distributed data in distributed agents & no fusion center • Consideration of privacy, difficulty in data collection, etc • Decentralized jointly sparse optimization Goal: agent i has y(i) and A(i), to recover x(i) through collaboration

  11. Background (III): applications • Cooperative spectrum sensing [1][2] • Cognitive radios sense jointly sparse spectra {x(i)} • Measure from time domain [1] or frequency selective filter [2] • Decentralized recovery from {y(i)=A(i)x(i)} • Decentralized event detection [3] • Sensors {i} sense few targets represented by jointly sparse {x(i)} • Decentralized recovery from {y(i)=A(i)x(i)} • Collaborative data mining, distributed human action recognition, etc [1] F.

Nasrabadi, and T. Tran, “Robust multi-sensor classification via joint sparse representation,” submitted to Journal of Advance in Information Fusion

  12. Roadmap (I): nonconvex versus convex • Convex model: group lasso or L21 norm minimization regularization parameter • Nonconvex versus convex • Convex: with global convergence guarantee • Nonconvex: often with better recovery performance • Look back on nonconvex models to recover a single sparse signal • Reweighted L1/L2 norm minimization [4][5] • Reweighted algorithms for jointly sparse optimization?

Yin, “Iteratively reweighted algorithms for compressive sensing,” In: Proceedings of ICASSP, 2008

  13. Roadmap (II): difficulty in decentralized computing • A popular decentralized computing technique: consensus objective function in agent i common optimization variable local copy in agent i neighboring copies are equal • Obviously, two problems are equivalent for a connected network • Efficient algorithms (ADM, SGD, etc) for if it is convex [6] • Nothing for consensus in jointly sparse optimization! • Signals are different; common supports bring nonconvexity [6] D. Bertsekas and J. Tsitsiklis, Parallel and Distributed Computation: Numerical Methods, Second Edition, Athena Scientific, 1997

  14. Roadmap (III): solution overview • Nonconvex model + convex decentralized computing subproblem • Nonconvex model -> successive linearization -> reweighted Lq • Natural decentralized computing, one nontrivial subproblem • Inexactly solving the subproblem still leads to good recovery

  15. Algorithm (I): successive linearization smoothing parameter • Nonconvex model (q=1 or 2) regularization parameter • “Successive linearization” to the joint sparsity term at t Actually a majorization minimization approach

  16. Algorithm (II): reweighted algorithm • Centralized reweighted Lq minimization algorithm • Updating weight vector weight vector u=[u1; u2; uN] • Updating signals • From a decentralized implementation perspective … • Natural decentralized computing in x-update • One subproblem needs decentralized solution in u-update

  17. Algorithm (III): average consensus • Check u-update: average consensus problem • Rewrite to more familiar forms

  18. Algorithm (IV): inexact average consensus • Solve the average consensus problem with ADM (time t, slot s/S) • Updating weight vectors (local copies) • Updating Lagrange multipliers (c is a positive constant) • Exact average consensus versus inexact average consensus • Exact average consensus: exact implementation of reweighted Lq • Introducing inner loops: cost of coordination & communication • Inexact average consensus: one iteration in the inner loop

  19. Algorithm (V): decentralized reweighted Lq • Algorithm outline • Updating weight vectors (local copies) • Updating Lagrange multipliers (c is a positive constant) • Updating signals

  20.
