On-line Machine Learning using Stochastic Gradient Descent is an inherently sequential computation. This makes it difficult to improve performance by simply employing parallel architectures. Langford et al. made a modification to the standard stochastic gradient descent approach which opens up the possibility of parallel computation. They also proved that there is no significant loss in accuracy in their approach. They did empirically demonstrate the performance gain in speed for the case of a...[Show more]
