A non-asymptotic model selection in mixture of experts models

This talk is devoted to the study of the problem of model selection among a collection of GLoME or BLoME models characterized by the number of mixture components, the complexity of Gaussian mean experts, and the hidden block-diagonal structures of the covariance matrices, in a penalized maximum likelihood estimation framework. In particular, we establish non-asymptotic risk bounds that take the form of weak oracle inequalities, provided that lower bounds of the penalties hold. Their good empirical behavior is then demonstrated on synthetic and real datasets.
