Most ICA algorithms are sensitive to outliers. Instead of robustifying existing algorithms by outlier rejection techniques, we show how a simple outlier index can be used directly to solve the ICA problem for super-Gaussian source signals. This ICA method is outlier-robust by construction and can be used for standard ICA as well as for over-complete ICA (i.e.~more source signals than observed signals (mixtures)).
