Can speed up the convergence rate of stochastic gradient methods to $\mathcal{O}(1/k^2)$ by a gradient averaging strategy?

25 Feb 2020 Xin Xu Xiaopeng Luo

In this paper we consider the question of whether it is possible to apply a gradient averaging strategy to improve on the sublinear convergence rates without any increase in storage. Our analysis reveals that a positive answer requires an appropriate averaging strategy and iterations that satisfy the variance dominant condition... (read more)
