Speech Title: On Least-Squares Fuzzy Transforms and Autoencoders
Abstract: In this talk analogies and differences between a type of fuzzy transform and a type of autoencoder, both based on a least-squares optimization, will be presented. Such schemes have been recently introduced in the literature in different contexts. As it will be shown, the least-squares fuzzy transform can be regarded as a kind of autoencoder with a lower computational cost.
