Machine learning

We propose an efficient distributed algorithm for solving regularized learning problems. In a distributed framework with a master machine coordinating the computations of many slave machines, our proximal-gradient algorithm allows local computations and sparse communications from slaves to master. Furthermore, for an L1-regularization, our approach automatically identifies the support of the solution, leading to sparse communications from master to slaves, with near-optimal support. We thus obtain an algorithm with two-way sparse communications. Finally, we will give extensions of this work to more general distributed architectures.
