We study a general class of online learning problems where the feedback is specified by a graph. This class includes online prediction with expert advice and the multiarmed bandit problem, but also several learning problems where the online player does not necessarily observe his own loss. We analyze how the structure of the feedback graph controls the(More)
Robust optimization is a common framework in optimization under uncertainty when the problem parameters are not known, but it is rather known that the parameters belong to some given uncertainty set. In the robust optimization framework the problem solved is a min-max problem where a solution is judged according to its performance on the worst possible(More)
We consider the most common variants of linear regression, including Ridge, Lasso and Support-vector regression, in a setting where the learner is allowed to observe only a fixed number of attributes of each example at training time. We present simple and efficient algorithms for these problems: for Lasso and Ridge regression they need the same total number(More)
We consider the fundamental problem of maximizing a general quadratic function over an ellipsoidal domain, also known as the trust region problem. We give the first provable linear-time (in the number of non-zero entries of the input) algorithm for approximately solving this problem. Specifically, our algorithm returns an ǫ-approximate solution in time Õ(N/(More)
Stochastic exp-concave optimization is an important primitive in machine learning that captures several fundamental problems, including linear regression, logistic regression and more. The exp-concavity property allows for fast convergence rates, as compared to general stochastic optimization. However, current algorithms that attain such rates scale poorly(More)
