• ### Bayesian Inference for Spatio-temporal Spike-and-Slab

2021-6-4 · The spike-and-slab prior is an increasingly popular choice of sparsity promoting prior and is given by a binary mixture of two components a Dirac delta distribution (spike) at zero and Gaussian distribution (slab) (Mitchell and Beauchamp 1988 Carbonetto and Stephens 2012). The spike-and-slab prior has been generalized to the group setting by

• ### Negotiating multicollinearity with spike-and-slab priors

2014-6-11 · In multiple regression under the normal linear model the presence of multicollinearity is well known to lead to unreliable and unstable maximum likelihood estimates. This can be particularly troublesome for the problem of variable selection where it becomes more difficult to distinguish between subset models. Here we show how adding a spike-and-slab prior mitigates this difficulty by

2011-12-14 · These spike and slab priors can be written as p( j ) = pslab( ) ∏ j j=0 pspike( j) where pspike and pslab denote the univariate spike and the multivariate slab distribution respectively. The prior inclusion probability p( j = 1) of the effect j is speciﬁed hierar-chically as p( j = 1j ) = ˘ B(a b )

That is the selected features are separated from the unselected ones by binary indicator variables while the weights of the unselected features are strongly shrunk toward zero via the spike prior the weights of the selected features are just mildly regularized via the slab prior (equivalent to L 2 regularizations

2015-3-22 · Other priors have been given the name "spike and slab" since -- including the case with a Gaussian slab as you mention. In that case the prior is proper as long as the variance of the normal is finite. 1 Mitchell T.J. and Beauchamp J.J. (1988) "Bayesian Variable Selection in Linear Regression"

• ### Spike and Slab Prior Based Joint Sparse Channel Estimation

2020-10-23 · We introduce a novel spike and slab prior based Gibbs sampling (SS-GS) approach to reconstruct the signal. It is shown that the introduced spike and slab prior is more effective in promoting sparsity and sparse signal reconstruction and the proposed SSGS scheme outperforms the conventional schemes for CE and MUD in MTC communications.

• ### Spike-and-slab priors — The Bayesian Observer

2017-1-7 · With a spike of zero variance (a Dirac Delta function) the spike and slab prior perfectly expresses the original variable selection criterion of either accepting or rejecting a variable. However with this prior there is no closed form penalty function that can simply be appended to the original objective function and the result minimized.

• ### Spike and slab Bayesian linear regression with variable

2018-6-20 · Spike and slab is a Bayesian model for simultaneously picking features and doing linear regression. Spike and slab is a shrinkage method much like ridge and lasso regression in the sense that it shrinks the "weak" beta values from the regression towards zero. Don t worry if you have never heard of any of those terms we will explore all of these using Stan.

• ### Generalized spike-and-slab priors for Bayesian group

Exact Bayesian inference under the prior considered is infeasible for typical regression problems. However approximate inference can be carried out efficiently using Expectation Propagation (EP). A detailed analysis of the generalized spike-and-slab prior shows that it is well suited for regression problems that are sparse at the group level.

2020-11-20 · To address these issues we developed OLSS a Bayesian online sparse learning algorithm based on the spike-and-slab prior. OLSS achieves the same scalability as FTRL-proximal but realizes appealing selective shrinkage and produces rich uncertainty information such as posterior inclusion probabilities and feature weight variances.

) is the marginal prior onxi andis a xed hyperparameter controlling thedegree of sparsity. Examples of such sparsity promoting priors include the Laplace prior(LASSO) and the Bernoulli-Gaussian prior (the spike and slab model). The mainadvantage of this formulation is that the inference schemes become relatively simple due tothe fact that the prior factorizes over the variablesxi. However this fact also implies thatthe models cannot encode any prior

2018-12-18 · An important task in building regression models is to decide which regressors should be included in the final model. In a Bayesian approach variable selection can be performed using mixture priors with a spike and a slab component for the effects subject to selection. As the spike is concentrated at zero variable selection is based on the probability of assigning the corresponding regression

2010-1-20 · 1. The use of a spike and slab model with a continuous bimodal prior for hypervariances has distinct advantages in terms of calibration. However like any prior its effect becomes swamped by the likelihood as the sample size n increases thus reducing the potential for the prior to impact model selection relative to a frequentist method.

• ### Bayesian Inference for Structured Spike and Slab Priors

Sparse signal recovery addresses the problem of solving underdetermined linear inverse problems subject to a sparsity constraint. We propose a novel prior formulation the structured spike and slab prior which allows to incorporate a priori knowledge of the sparsity pattern by imposing a spatial Gaussian process on the spike and slab probabilities.
