Exploiting Smoothness in Statistical Learning, Sequential Prediction, and Stochastic Optimization

19 Jul 2014 Mehrdad Mahdavi

In the last several years, the intimate connection between convex optimization and learning problems, in both statistical and sequential frameworks, has shifted the focus of algorithmic machine learning to examine this interplay. In particular, on one hand, this intertwinement brings forward new challenges in reassessment of the performance of learning algorithms including generalization and regret bounds under the assumptions imposed by convexity such as analytical properties of loss functions (e.g., Lipschitzness, strong convexity, and smoothness)...
