On Friday, 2021-06-18, 14:00-15:00, our institute hosted the invited talk "High-dimensional Statistics and Large-Scale Inference with Graphical Nonlinear Knockoffs" by Prof. Dr. Gaorong LI [李高荣] from the School of Statistics of Beijing Normal University [北京师范大学统计学院]. We warmly thank Prof. LI for introducing his research field and his significant contributions to us. We very much looked forward to his inspiring talk and also particularly enjoyed the discussion that followed. After this presentation, we also hosted another two interesting talks on the same day.

摘要: This talk first introduces some high-dimensional statistics, then introduces the recent work about graphical nonlinear knockoffs. Power and reproducibility are key to enabling refined scientific discoveries in contemporary big data applications with general high-dimensional nonlinear models. In this article, we provide theoretical foundations on the power and robustness for the model-X knockoffs procedure introduced recently in Candès, Fan, Janson and Lv in high-dimensional setting when the covariate distribution is characterized by Gaussian with known covariate distribution in high-dimensional linear models is asymptotically one as sample size goes to infinity. When moving away from the ideal case, we suggest the modified model-X knockoffs method called graphical nonlinear knockoffs (RANK) to accommodate the unknown covariate distribution. We provide theoretical justifications on the robustness of our modified procedure by showing that the false discovery rate (FDR) is asymptotically controlled at the target level and the power is asymptotically one with the estimated covariate distribution. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first formal theoretical result on the power for the knockoffs procedure. Simulation results demonstrate that compared to existing approaches, our method performs competitively in both FDR control and power. A real dataset is analyzed to further assess the performance of the suggested knockoffs procedure.
