Fast Polynomial Kernel Classification for Massive Data

11/24/2019 ∙ by Jinshan Zeng, et al. ∙ 0

In the era of big data, it is highly desired to develop efficient machine learning algorithms to tackle massive data challenges such as storage bottleneck, algorithmic scalability, and interpretability. In this paper, we develop a novel efficient classification algorithm, called fast polynomial kernel classification (FPC), to conquer the scalability and storage challenges. Our main tools are a suitable selected feature mapping based on polynomial kernels and an alternating direction method of multipliers (ADMM) algorithm for a related non-smooth convex optimization problem. Fast learning rates as well as feasibility verifications including the convergence of ADMM and the selection of center points are established to justify theoretical behaviors of FPC. Our theoretical assertions are verified by a series of simulations and real data applications. The numerical results demonstrate that FPC significantly reduces the computational burden and storage memory of the existing learning schemes such as support vector machines and boosting, without sacrificing their generalization abilities much.
