Comparing MKL-DR with other multiview methods Comparing MKL-DR with other multiview methods

Unsupervised Multiple Kernel Learning, an algorithm that allows for dimensionality reduction and data fusion, could be expressed as a specific implementation of an autoencoder. In this project we will look into potential ways of replicating the MKL-DR scenario with autoencoders. This will ultimately result in autoencoders that also allow for data fusion and dimensional reduction.

Preferred skills: comfortable with Matlab; notions of machine learning.
