Full-duplex communications systems that transmit and receive simultaneously suffer self-interference due to the mixing of the transmitted signal and the weaker received signal at the same node. The problem becomes compounded in Multi-Input Multi-Output (MIMO) systems, where considerable overhead is dedicated to training. In this article, we discuss using blind source separation techniques, namely Independent Component Analysis (ICA) to reduce training overhead in MIMO in-band full-duplex
