Mini-Batch Primal and Dual Methods for SVMs

Abstract

We address the issue of using mini-batches in stochastic optimization of SVMs. We show that the same quantity, the spectral norm of the data, controls the parallelization speedup obtained for both primal stochastic subgradi-ent descent (SGD) and stochastic dual coordinate ascent (SCDA) methods and use it to derive novel variants of mini-batched SDCA. Our guarantees for both methods are expressed in terms of the original nonsmooth primal problem based on the hinge-loss.
