报告题目：Scalable Kernel-based Variable Selection With Sparsistency
报告摘要：Variable selection is central to sparse modeling, and many methods have been proposed under various model assumptions. In this talk, we will present a scalable framework for model-free variable selection in reproducing kernel Hilbert space (RKHS) without specifying any restrictive model. As opposed to most existing model-free variable selection methods requiring xed dimension, the proposed method allows dimension p to diverge with sample size n. The proposed method is motivated from the classical hard-threshold variable selection for linear models, but allows for general variable eects.It does not require specication of the underlying model for the response,which is appealing in sparse modeling with a large number of variables.The proposed method can also be adapted to various scenarios with specic model assumptions, including linear models, quadratic models, as well as additive models. The asymptotic estimation and variable selection consistencies of the proposed method are established in all the scenarios. If time permits, the extension of the proposed method beyond mean regression will also be discussed.
