Abstract

We present a novel method for structure-preserving dimensionality reduction. The Exploration Machine (Exploratory Observation Machine, XOM) computes graphical representations of high-dimensional observations by a strategy of self-organized model adaptation. Although simple and computationally efficient, XOM enjoys a surprising flexibility to simultaneously contribute to several different domains of advanced machine learning, scientific data analysis, and visualization, such as structure-preserving dimensionality reduction and data clustering.
