The past years have witnessed many dedicated open-source projects that built and maintain implementations of Support Vector Machines (SVM), parallelized for GPU, multi-core CPUs and distributed systems. Up to this point, no comparable effort has been made to parallelize the Elastic Net, despite its popularity in many high impact applications, including genetics, neuroscience and systems […]

The sequential Monte Carlo (smc) methods have been widely used for modern scientific computation. Bayesian model comparison has been successfully applied in many fields. Yet there have been few researches on the use of smc for the purpose of Bayesian model comparison. This thesis studies different smc strategies for Bayesian model computation. In addition, various […]

In recent years, the Hamiltonian Monte Carlo (HMC) algorithm has been found to work more efficiently compared to other popular Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) methods (such as random walk Metropolis-Hastings) in generating samples from a posterior distribution. A general framework for HMC based on the use of graphical processing units (GPUs) is shown to […]

The Probability Density Function (PDF) is a key concept in statistics. Constructing the most adequate PDF from the observed data is still an important and interesting scientific problem, especially for large datasets. PDFs are often estimated using nonparametric data-driven methods. One of the most popular nonparametric method is the Kernel Density Estimator (KDE). However, a […]

It is time-consuming and error-prone to implement inference procedures for each new probabilistic model. Probabilistic programming addresses this problem by allowing a user to specify the model and having a compiler automatically generate an inference procedure for it. For this approach to be practical, it is important to generate inference code that has reasonable performance. […]

We present a single-chain parallelization strategy for Gibbs sampling of probabilistic Directed Acyclic Graphs, where contributions from child nodes to the conditional posterior distribution of a given node are calculated concurrently. For statistical models with many independent observations, such parallelism takes a Single-Instruction-Multiple-Data form, and can be efficiently implemented using multicore parallelization and vector instructions […]

We explore how the big-three computing paradigms — symmetric multi-processor (SMC), graphical processing units (GPUs), and cluster computing — can together be brought to bare on large-data Gaussian processes (GP) regression problems via a careful implementation of a newly developed local approximation scheme. Our methodological contribution focuses primarily on GPU computation, as this requires the […]

Sequential Monte Carlo is a family of algorithms for sampling from a sequence of distributions. Some of these algorithms, such as particle filters, are widely used in the physics and signal processing researches. More recent developments have established their application in more general inference problems such as Bayesian modeling. These algorithms have attracted considerable attentions […]

LibBi is a software package for state-space modelling and Bayesian inference on modern computer hardware, including multi-core central processing units (CPUs), many-core graphics processing units (GPUs) and distributed-memory clusters of such devices. The software parses a domain-specific language for model specification, then optimises, generates, compiles and runs code for the given model, inference method and […]

This article describes a methodology for fitting experimental data to the discrete power-law distribution and provides the results of a detailed simulation exercise used to calculate accurate cutoff values used to assess the fit to a power-law distribution when using the maximum likelihood estimation for the exponent of the distribution. Using massively parallel programming computing, […]

We show that a recently proposed regularization method called random dropouts works well for language models based on neural networks when little training data is available. Random dropout regularization involves adding a certain kind of noise to the likelihood function being optimized and can be interpreted as a variational approximation to a new class of […]

Modern parallel computing devices such as the graphics processing unit (GPU) have gained significant traction in scientific computing, and are particularly well-suited to data-parallel algorithms such as the particle filter. Of the components of the particle filter, the resampling step is the most difficult to implement well on such devices, as it often requires a […]
