Class meeting for 10-605 SGD for MF
From Cohen Courses
This is one of the class meetings on the schedule for the course Machine Learning with Large Datasets 10-605 in Fall_2016.
- Large-Scale Matrix Factorization with Distributed Stochastic Gradient Descent, Gemulla et al, KDD 2011.
Things to Remember
- Definition of matrix factorization
- Common applications of matrix factorization, and how they map into the MF problem
- Loss functions for matrix factorization that are appropriate for collaborative filtering
- Algorithm and updates for SGD implementation of matrix factorization
- dSGD algorithm - what is done in parallel and what is done sequentially
- Definitions: stratum, interchangable steps, diagonal
