Structured second-order methods via natural gradient descent

07/22/2021 ∙ by Wu Lin, et al. ∙ 0

In this paper, we propose new structured second-order methods and structured adaptive-gradient methods obtained by performing natural-gradient descent on structured parameter spaces. Natural-gradient descent is an attractive approach to design new algorithms in many settings such as gradient-free, adaptive-gradient, and second-order methods. Our structured methods not only enjoy a structural invariance but also admit a simple expression. Finally, we test the efficiency of our proposed methods on both deterministic non-convex problems and deep learning problems.
