报告摘要:This tutorialshall present two matrix-free methods for solving exact penalty subproblems on product sets that arise when solving large-scale optimization problems. The first approach is a novel iterative reweighting algorithm (IRWA), which iteratively minimizes quadratic models of relaxed subproblems while automatically updating a relaxation vector. The second approach is based on alternating direction augmented Lagrangian (ADMM) technology applied to our setting. The main computational costs of each algorithm are the repeated minimizations of convex quadratic functions which can be performed matrix-free. We prove that both algorithms are globally convergent un- der loose assumptions and that each requires at most O(1/ε2) iterations to reach ε-optimality of the objective function. We also extend our methods to solve Lp-norm regularized problems, which is nonconvex and nonsmooth.This tutorialpropose a general formulation of nonconvex regularization problems with convex set constraint, which can take into account most existing types of nonconvex regularization terms, bringing strong applicability to a wide range of applications. We design an algorithmic framework of iteratively reweighted algorithms for solving the proposed nonconvex regularization problems, which solves a sequence of weighted convex regularization problems with iteratively updated weights. We also provide global convergence under loose assumptions. This makes our method a tool for a family of various reweighted algorithms. The effectiveness and efficiency of our proposed formulation and the algorithms are demonstrated in numerical experiments for various regularization problems.

题目:Mobile Edge Artificial Intelligence: Opportunities and Challenges

报告摘要:With the availability of massive data sets, high performance computing platforms, as well as sophisticated algorithms and software toolkits, artificial intelligence (AI) has achieved remarkable successes in many application domains, e.g., computer vision and natural language processing. However, AI tasks are computationally intensive and normally trained, developed, and deployed at data centers with custom-designed servers. Given the fast growth of intelligent devices, it is expected that a large number of high-stake applications (e.g., drones, autonomous cars, AR/VR) will be deployed at the edge of wireless networks in near future. As such, the intelligent wireless network will be designed to leverage advanced wireless communications and mobile computing technologies to support AI-enabled applications at various edge mobile devices with limited communication, computation, storage, hardware and energy resources. The aim of this tutorial is to present recent advances in mobile edge artificial intelligence systems, with a comprehensive coverage including edge inference process, edge training process and implementation issues. Through typical examples, the powerfulness of edge machine learning will be demonstrated, and their abilities in making low-latency, reliable and private intelligent decisions at network edge will be highlighted.
