A Reliable Effective Terascale Linear Learning System

19 Oct 2011  ·  Alekh Agarwal, Olivier Chapelle, Miroslav Dudik, John Langford ·

We present a system and a set of techniques for learning linear predictors with convex losses on terascale datasets, with trillions of features, {The number of features here refers to the number of non-zero entries in the data matrix.} billions of training examples and millions of parameters in an hour using a cluster of 1000 machines. Individually none of the component techniques are new, but the careful synthesis required to obtain an efficient implementation is. The result is, up to our knowledge, the most scalable and efficient linear learning system reported in the literature (as of 2011 when our experiments were conducted). We describe and thoroughly evaluate the components of the system, showing the importance of the various design choices.
