The GenLasso Package

Taylor Arnold will present his GenLasso R package, which is used for computing the solution path of the generalized lasso problem discussed in Tibshirani and Taylor (2011). Use cases of the generalized lasso include the fused lasso over an arbitrary graph and trend fitting of any given polynomial order.


Taylor Arnold received his undergraduate degree in Mathematics from Bowdoin College before a working for IBM and earning his PhD in Statistics for Yale University. Dr. Arnold is now a Manager of Analytics and Reseach at the Travelers

    Is it possible to get the slides for the talk that were presented?
    Also, Kirk could you send me the link about the faster image smoothing algorithm similar to Gen Lasso?
