报告题目: Learning Parameter Heterogeneity over Networks: A Distributed Tree-Based Fused-Lasso Approach

报 告 人:Zhengyuan Zhu 教授 美国爱荷华州立大学

报告时间:2019711日上午9:40-10:20

报告地点:数学楼一楼第一报告厅

报告摘要:

We propose an adaptive fused-lasso based coefficient subgroup approach in the decentralized network system. The major goal is to improve the model estimation efficiency by aggregating the neighbors & information as well as identify the subgroup membership for each node in the network. In particular, a tree-based $l_1$ penalty is proposed to save the computation and communication cost. We also design a decentralized generalized alternating direction method of multiplier algorithm for solving the objective function in parallel. The theoretical properties are derived to guarantee both the model consistency and the algorithm convergence. Thorough numerical experiments are also conducted to back up our theory, which also show that our approach outperforms in the aspects of the estimation accuracy, computation speed and communication cost.
