TCS Prof. Anindya De had a joint paper with Michael Saks (Rutgers) and Sijian Tang (Rutgers) in 57th Annual IEEE Symposium on Foundations of Computer Science (FOCS 16). The paper “Noisy population recovery in polynomial time” addresses the problem of recovering an unknown distribution on binary strings under noise. This problem is related to well-studied problems in learning such as learning mixtures of spherical Gaussians and product distributions. A manuscript of the paper can be found here.
