Multimodal fusion using sparse CCA for breast cancer survival prediction

Vaishnavi Subramanian, Tanveer Syeda-Mahmood, Minh N. Do

Effective understanding of a disease such as cancer requires fusing multiple sources of information captured across physical scales by multimodal data. In this work, we propose a novel feature embedding module that derives from canonical correlation analyses to account for intra-modality and inter-modality correlations. Experiments on simulated and real data demonstrate how our proposed module can learn well-correlated multi-dimensional embeddings. These embeddings perform competitively on one-year survival classification of TCGA-BRCA breast cancer patients, yielding average F1 scores up to 58.69% under 5-fold cross-validation.
