A unified PAC-Bayesian framework for machine unlearning via information risk minimization

06/01/2021 ∙ by Sharu Theresa Jose, et al. ∙ 0

Machine unlearning refers to mechanisms that can remove the influence of a subset of training data upon request from a trained model without incurring the cost of re-training from scratch. This paper develops a unified PAC-Bayesian framework for machine unlearning that recovers the two recent design principles - variational unlearning (Nguyen et.al., 2020) and forgetting Lagrangian (Golatkar et.al., 2020) - as information risk minimization problems (Zhang,2006). Accordingly, both criteria can be interpreted as PAC-Bayesian upper bounds on the test loss of the unlearned model that take the form of free energy metrics.
