We consider the problem of learning multi ridge functions of the form f(x) = g(Ax) from point evaluations of f. We assume that the function f is defined on an l2-ball in Rd, g is twice continuously differentiable, and A is a k x d, rank k matrix, k « d. We leverage recent techniques from low rank matrix recovery and propose a randomized, polynomial-complexity sampling scheme for uniform approximation of such functions. As a consequence we remove the commonly made compressibility assumption on the rows of A in the existing literature. Furthermore we establish the tractability of our scheme when f is a sum of k ridge functions provided f satisfies additional smoothness properties in a neighborhood of the origin.
