Localized Linear Regression in Networked Data
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article › Scientific › peer-review
The network Lasso (nLasso) has been proposed recently as an efficient learning algorithm for massive networked data sets (big data over networks). It extends the well-known least absolute shrinkage and selection operator (Lasso) from learning sparse (generalized) linear models to network models. Efficient implementations of the nLasso have been obtained using convex optimization methods lending to scalable message passing protocols. In this letter, we analyze the statistical properties of nLasso when applied to localized linear regression problems involving networked data. Our main result is a sufficient condition on the network structure and available label information such that nLasso accurately learns a localized linear regression model from a few labeled data points. We also provide an implementation of nLasso for localized linear regression by specializing a primal-dual method for solving the convex (non-smooth) nLasso problem.
