Semi-Supervised Learning Detector for MU-MIMO Systems with One-bit ADCs

Seonho Kim, Song-Nam Hong

We study an uplink multiuser multiple-input multiple-output (MU-MIMO) system with one-bit analog-to-digital converters (ADCs). For such system, a supervised-learning (SL) detector has been recently proposed by modeling a non-linear end-to-end system function into a parameterized Bernoulli-like model. Despite its attractive performance, the SL detector requires a large amount of labeled data (i.e., pilot signals) to estimate the parameters of the underlying model accurately. This is because the amount of the parameters grows exponentially with the number of users. To overcome this drawback, we propose a semi-supervised learning (SSL) detector where both pilot signals (i.e., labeled data) and some part of data signals (i.e., unlabeled data) are used to estimate the parameters via expectation-maximization (EM) algorithm. Via simulation results, we demonstrate that the proposed SSL detector can achieve the performance of the existing SL detector with significantly lower pilot-overhead.
