Recurrent neural network for approximate nonnegative matrix factorization
Giovanni Costantini, Renzo Perfetti, Massimiliano Todisco
A recurrent neural network solving the approximate nonnegative matrix factorization (NMF) problem is presented in this paper. The proposed network is based on the Lagrangian approach, and exploits a partial dual method in order to limit the number of dual variables. Sparsity constraints on basis or activation matrices are included by adding a weighted sum of constraint functions to the least squares reconstruction error. However, the corresponding Lagrange multipliers are computed by the network dynamics itself, avoiding empirical tuning or a validation process. It is proved that local solutions of the NMF optimization problem correspond to as many stable steady-state points of the network dynamics. The validity of the proposed approach is verified through several simulation examples concerning both synthetic and real-world datasets for feature extraction and clustering applications.

Abstract. In the framework of computer-aided diagnosis of eye diseases, retinal vessel segmentation based on line operators is proposed. A line detector, previously used in mammography, is applied to the green channel of the retinal image. It is based on the evaluation of the average grey level along lines of fixed length passing through the target pixel at different orientations. Two segmentation methods are considered. The first uses the basic line detector whose response is thresholded to obtain unsupervised pixel classification. As a further development we employ two orthogonal line detectors along with the grey level of the target pixel to construct a feature vector for supervised classification using a support vector machine (SVM). The effectiveness of both methods is demonstrated through receiver operating characteristic (ROC) analysis on two publicly available databases of color fundus images.
