But they can in the online learning framework!
14 Learning in an artificial agent We have the Learner and the Teacher. The Learner observes examples in a sequence of rounds, and constructs the classification function incrementally.
15 Learning in an artificial agent Given an input, the Learner predicts its label.
16 Learning in an artificial agent Then the Teacher reveals the true label.
17 Learning in an artificial agent The Learner compares its prediction with the true label and update its knowledge. The aim of the learner is to minimize the number of mistakes.
18 Machine learning point of view on online learning The Teacher is a black box It can chose the examples arbitrarily  in the worst case the choice can be adversarial! There is no IID assumption on the data! Useful to model interaction between the user and the algorithm or nonstationary data Performance is measured while training : no separate testing set Update after each sample: efficiency of the update is important See [CesaBianchi & Lugosi, 2006] for a full introduction to the theory of online learning. universitylogo
19  Formal setting Learning goes on in a sequence of T rounds Instances: x t X Images, sounds, etc. Labels: y t Y Labels, numbers, structured output, etc. Prediction rule, f t (x) = ŷ for binary classification ŷ = sign( w, x ) Loss, l(ŷ, y) R +
20 Regret bounds The learner must minimize its loss on the T observed samples T l(ŷ t, y t ) t=1
21 Regret bounds The learner must minimize its loss on the T observed samples, compared to the loss of the best fixed predictor T l(ŷ t, y t ) min f t=1 T l (f (x t ), y t ) + R T t=1
22 Regret bounds The learner must minimize its loss on the T observed samples, compared to the loss of the best fixed predictor T l(ŷ t, y t ) min f t=1 T l (f (x t ), y t ) + R T t=1 We want the regret, R T, to be small: a small regret indicates that the performance of the learner is not too far from the one of the best fixed classifier
23 A loss for everyone Mistake, l 01 (w, x, y) := 1(y sign( w, x )) Hinge, l hinge (w, x, y) := max (0, 1 y w, x ) Logistic regression, l logreg (w, x, y) := log (1 + exp ( y w, x )) exponential loss, etc.
24 Let s start from the Perceptron for t = 1, 2,..., T do Receive new instance x t Predict ŷ t = sign( w, x t ) Receive label y t if y t ŷ t then w = w + y t x t end if end for
25 The mistake bound of the Perceptron Let (x 1, y 1 ),, (x T, y T ) be any sequence of instancelabel pairs, y t { 1, +1}, and x t R. The number of mistakes of the Perceptron is bounded by where L = T i l hinge (u, x i, y i ) min L + u 2 R 2 + u R L u } {{ } R T
26 The mistake bound of the Perceptron Let (x 1, y 1 ),, (x T, y T ) be any sequence of instancelabel pairs, y t { 1, +1}, and x t R. The number of mistakes of the Perceptron is bounded by where L = T i l hinge (u, x i, y i ) min L + u 2 R 2 + u R L u } {{ } R T If the problem is linearly separable the maximum number of mistakes is R 2 u 2, regardless of the ordering of the samples!

31 Nonlinear classifiers using Kernels! Suppose to transform the inputs through a nonlinear transform φ(x), to the feature space A linear classifier in the feature space will result in a nonlinear classifier in the input space We can do even better: the algorithms just need to access to φ(x 1 ), φ(x 2 ), so if we have such a function, K (x 1, x 2 ), we do not need φ()!
32 Kernel Perceptron for t = 1, 2,..., T do Receive new instance ( x t ) Predict ŷ t = sign x i S y ik (x i, x t ) Receive label y t if y t ŷ t then Add x t to the support set S end if end for
33 Follow The Regularized Leader algorithm is just a particular case of a more general algorithm: the follow the regularized leader (FTRL) algorithm In FTRL, at each time step we predict with the approximate batch solution using a linearization of the loss, instead of the true loss functions Regret bounds will come almost for free! See [Kakade et al., 2009] for FTRL and [Orabona&Crammer, 2010] for an even more general algorithm
34 The general algorithm for t = 1, 2,..., T do Receive new instance x t Predict ŷ t Receive label y t θ = θ η t l(w, x t, y t ) w = g t (θ) end for F. Orabona, and K. Crammer. New Adaptive for Online Classification. Accepted in Neural Information Processing Systems (NIPS) 2010
35 The general algorithm for t = 1, 2,..., T do Receive new instance x t Predict ŷ t Receive label y t θ = θ η t l(w, x t, y t ) w = g t (θ) end for Suppose g t (θ) = 1 2 θ 2 g t (θ) = θ Let s use the hinge loss l(w, x t, y t ) = y t x t η t = 1 on mistakes, 0 otherwise We recovered the Perceptron algorithm!

36 The Recipe Create the online algorithm that best suits your needs! Define a task this will define a (convex) loss function. Define which charateristic you would like your solution to have this will define a (strongly convex) regularizer. Compute the gradient of the loss. Compute the gradient of the fenchel dual of the regularizer. Just code it!
37 Some examples Multiclassmultilabel classification, M classes, M different classifiers w i. l( w, x, Y) = max(1 + max y / Y w y, x min y Y w y, x, 0) Do you prefer sparse classifiers? Use the regularizer w 2 p with 1 < p 2. K different kernels? Use the regularizer [ w 1 2,..., w K 2 ] 2 with 1 < p 2. p
38 Batch Solutions with Online What most of the persons do when they want a batch solution: they stop the online algorithm and use the last solution found. This is wrong: the last solution can be arbitrarly bad! If the data are IID you can simply use the averaged solution [CesaBianchi et al., 2004]. Alternative way: several epochs of training, until convergence.

44 Experiments OM2 Projectron BBQ We compared OM2 to OMCL [Jie et al. ACCV09], and to PAI [Crammer et al. JMLR06] using the best feature and the sum of the kernels. We also used SILP [Sonnenburg et al. JMLR06], a stateoftheart MKL batch solver. We used the Caltech101 with 39 different kernels, as in [Gehler and Nowozin ICCV09].

58 OM2 Projectron BBQ Semisupervised online learning We are given N training samples and a regression problem, {x i, y i } N i=1, y i [ 1, 1] Obtaining the output for a given sample can be expensive, so we want to ask for as few as possible labels. We assume the outputs y t are realizations of random variables Y t such that E Y t = u x t for all t, where u R d is a fixed and unknown vector such that u = 1. The order of the data is still adversarial, but the outputs are generated by a stochastic source
