In this talk, I will first briefly reflect on my paths that I took after graduating from SNU EE, namely, Stanford, Yahoo!, Berkeley, Samsung, DGIST and SKKU, and summarize how my research topics have varied among various principles, such as information theory, applied statistics, and deep learning. After arguing that the topics I considered share a coherent theme of estimating an unknown source from its observation, I will introduce a recent work on applying deep neural networks to devising a novel universal denoiser, which attempts to combine the principles I learned along my paths. More specifically, I will show how the neural networks can be adaptively trained as a denoiser solely with statistical “loss estimators” obtained from noisy data (and without any ground-truth labels). I will then show that the performance of such adaptively trained denoiser can be boosted when combined with supervised learning, by presenting strong empirical results on two very different data sources, namely, image and DNA sequence. Our scheme significantly outperforms the previous state-of-the-art developed from the information theoretic principle. Finally, I will conclude the talk with some on-going and future research directions.
