We devise a communication-efficient approach to distributed sparse regression in the highdimensional setting. The key idea is to average “debiased” or “desparsified” lasso estimators. We show the approach converges at the same rate as the lasso as long as the dataset is not split across too many machines, and consistently estimates the support under weaker conditions than the lasso. On the computational side, we propose a new parallel and computationally-efficient algorithm to compute the… CONTINUE READING
