Neural Augmentation

Deep learning has been amazingly successful in solving AI tasks where the domain is well defined and a lot of data is available for that domain. Examples include speech recognition, (medical) image analysis, automatic translation and so on. However, increasingly researchers are worried about 'out-of-domain generalization' where a model needs to perform well on data that the learning algorithm has never seen before. Traditional engineering approaches, which include a large amount of prior knowledge and model the physical data generation process often do better in this regime. Therefore, a natural question to ask is how to combine these two approaches. In this talk we introduce 'neural augmentation', which builds a black box neural network around an interpretable graphical (generative) model of the data. The model is trained end-to-end by unrolling the inference procedure in the graphical model (given by belief propagation), augmenting it with a factor-graph neural network, and backpropagating through the whole recurrent architecture so defined. We illustrate these ideas on LDPC error correction decoding with bursty channels and on reconstructing MRI images from a reduced set of (fourier) measurements.
