报告摘要:Wasserstein Distributionally Robust Stochastic Optimization (DRSO) is concerned with finding decisions that perform well on data that are drawn from the worst-case probability distribution within a Wasserstein ball centered at a certain nominal distribution. In recent years, it has been shown that various DRSO formulations of learning models admit tractable convex reformulations. However, most existing works propose to solve these convex reformulations by general-purpose solvers, which are not well-suited for tackling large-scale problems. In this talk, we focus on Wasserstein distributionally robust support vector machine (DRSVM) problems and logistic regression (DRLR) problems, and propose two novel first order algorithms to solve them. The updates in each iteration of these algorithms can be computed in a highly efficient manner. Our numerical results indicate that the proposed methods are orders of magnitude faster than the state-of-the-art, and the performance gap grows considerably as the problem size increases. Advanced models such as robust classification with fairness and unlabeled data are also discussed.
