Least Squares Approximation for a Distributed System

14 Aug 2019Xuening ZhuFeng LiHansheng Wang

In this work, we develop a distributed least squares approximation (DLSA) method that is able to solve a large family of regression problems (e.g., linear regression, logistic regression, and Cox's model) on a distributed system. By approximating the local objective function using a local quadratic form, we are able to obtain a combined estimator by taking a weighted average of local estimators... (read more)
