An inexact subsampled proximal Newton-type method for large-scale machine learning

28 Aug 2017 Xuanqing Liu Cho-Jui Hsieh Jason D. Lee Yuekai Sun

We propose a fast proximal Newton-type algorithm for minimizing regularized finite sums that returns an $\epsilon$-suboptimal point in $\tilde{\mathcal{O}}(d(n + \sqrt{\kappa d})\log(\frac{1}{\epsilon}))$ FLOPS, where $n$ is number of samples, $d$ is feature dimension, and $\kappa$ is the condition number. As long as $n > d$, the proposed method is more efficient than state-of-the-art accelerated stochastic first-order methods for non-smooth regularizers which requires $\tilde{\mathcal{O}}(d(n + \sqrt{\kappa n})\log(\frac{1}{\epsilon}))$ FLOPS...
