Gradient Coding Based on Block Designs for Mitigating Adversarial Stragglers

30 Apr 2019Swanand KadheO. Ozan KoyluogluKannan Ramchandran

Distributed implementations of gradient-based methods, wherein a server distributes gradient computations across worker machines, suffer from slow running machines, called 'stragglers'. Gradient coding is a coding-theoretic framework to mitigate stragglers by enabling the server to recover the gradient sum in the presence of stragglers... (read more)
