Nonlinear regularization path for quadratic loss support vector machines


, : Nonlinear regularization path for quadratic loss support vector machines. IEEE Transactions on Neural Networks 22(10): 1613-1625

Regularization path algorithms have been proposed to deal with model selection problem in several machine learning approaches. These algorithms allow computation of the entire path of solutions for every value of regularization parameter using the fact that their solution paths have piecewise linear form. In this paper, we extend the applicability of regularization path algorithm to a class of learning machines that have quadratic loss and quadratic penalty term. This class contains several important learning machines such as squared hinge loss support vector machine (SVM) and modified Huber loss SVM. We first show that the solution paths of this class of learning machines have piecewise nonlinear form, and piecewise segments between two breakpoints are characterized by a class of rational functions. Then we develop an algorithm that can efficiently follow the piecewise nonlinear path by solving these rational equations. To solve these rational equations, we use rational approximation technique with quadratic convergence rate, and thus, our algorithm can follow the nonlinear path much more precisely than existing approaches such as predictor-corrector type nonlinear-path approximation. We show the algorithm performance on some artificial and real data sets.
