Information fusion via the wasserstein barycenter in the space of probability measures: Direct fusion of empirical measures and Gaussian fusion with unknown correlation

Bishop, Adrian


In this work, a general information fusion problem is formulated as an optimisation protocol in the space of probability measures (i.e. the so-called Wasserstein metric space). The highlevel idea is to consider the data fusion result as the probability measure that is closest to a given collection of input measures in the sense that it will minimise the (weighted) Wasserstein distance between itself and the inputs. After formulating the general information fusion protocol, we consider the...[Show more]
