Blind source separation using FastICA¶
An example of estimating sources from noisy data.
Independent component analysis (ICA) is used to estimate sources given noisy measurements. Imagine 3 instruments playing simultaneously and 3 microphones recording the mixed signals. ICA is used to recover the sources ie. what is played by each instrument. Importantly, PCA fails at recovering our instruments since the related signals reflect non-Gaussian processes.
Generate sample data
np.random.seed(0) n_samples = 2000 time = np.linspace(0, 8, n_samples) s1 = np.sin(2 * time) # Signal 1 : sinusoidal signal s2 = np.sign(np.sin(3 * time)) # Signal 2 : square signal s3 = signal.sawtooth(2 * np.pi * time) # Signal 3: saw tooth signal S = np.c_[s1, s2, s3] S += 0.2 * np.random.normal(size=S.shape) # Add noise S /= S.std(axis=0) # Standardize data # Mix data A = np.array([[1, 1, 1], [0.5, 2, 1.0], [1.5, 1.0, 2.0]]) # Mixing matrix X = np.dot(S, A.T) # Generate observations # Compute ICA ica = FastICA(n_components=3) S_ = ica.fit_transform(X) # Reconstruct signals A_ = ica.mixing_ # Get estimated mixing matrix # We can `prove` that the ICA model applies by reverting the unmixing. assert np.allclose(X, np.dot(S_, A_.T) + ica.mean_) # For comparison, compute PCA pca = PCA(n_components=3) H = pca.fit_transform(X) # Reconstruct signals based on orthogonal components
