In the context of Independent Component Analysis (ICA), we propose a simple method for online estimation of activation functions in order to blindly separate instantaneous mixtures of sub-Gaussian and super-Gaussian signals. An adequate choice of these activation functions is necessary not only for a successful source separation (using relative gradient algorithm), but also to achieve sufficient level of cross-talk index. To accomplish this, we employ a simple parameterized model for the probability density functions of sources. The parameter of this distribution model (for each estimated source signal) is adapted online by minimizing the mutual information while the activation functions are obtained as the associated score functions. Furthermore, a modified relative gradient algorithm is derived that exhibits an isotropic convergence (near the desired solution) independent of the statistics of sources. Some simulation results are given to demonstrate the effectiveness of the presented methods.
