Papers to Read on Stochastic Gradient Descent


Abstract: We study the Stochastic Gradient Descent (SGD) algorithm in nonparametric statistics: kernel regression in particular. The directional bias property of SGD, which is known in the linear regression setting, is generalized to the kernel regression. More specifically, we prove that SGD with moderate and annealing step-size converges along the direction of the eigenvector that corresponds to the largest eigenvalue of the Gram matrix. These facts are referred to as the directional bias properties; they may interpret how an SGD-computed estimator has a potentially smaller generalization error than a GD-computed estimator. The application of our theory is demonstrated by simulation studies and a case study that is based on the FashionMNIST dataset.
