Polyak Introduction To Optimization Pdf 22

Description: CS4787 explores the principles behind scalable machine learning systems. The course will cover the algorithmic and the implementation principles that power the current generation of machine learning on big data. We will cover training and inference for both traditional ML algorithms such as linear and logistic regression, as well as deep models. Topics will include: estimating statistics of data quickly with subsampling, stochastic gradient descent and other scalable optimization methods, mini-batch training, accelerated methods, adaptive learning rates, methods for scalable deep learning, hyperparameter optimization, parallel and distributed training, and quantization and model compression.

Material: The course is based on books, papers, and other texts in machine learning, scalable optimization, and systems. Texts will be provided ahead of time on the website on a per-lecture basis. You aren't expected to necessarily read the texts, but they will provide useful background for the material we are discussing. 350c69d7ab
