Seminar abstract

Trace Norm Regularization: Theory, Algorithms, and Applications

Professor Jieping Ye
Department of Computer Science and Engineering
Arizona State University

Abstract :

The minimization of a smooth loss function regularized by the trace norm of the matrix variable has applications in many machine learning tasks including multi-task learning and matrix completion. The standard semidefinite programming formulation for this problem is computationally expensive. In this talk, I will present efficient algorithms for the trace norm regularization by exploiting the special structure of the trace norm. In addition, I will discuss the performance bounds of the least squares regression with trace norm regularization. Finally, I will introduce the SLEP package recently developed in my group for large-sale sparse learning.
