Large-scale image classification with trace-norm regularization

Abstract: With the advent of larger image classification datasets such as ImageNet, designing scalable and efficient multi-class classification algorithms is now an important challenge. We introduce a new scalable learning algorithm for large-scale multi-class image classification, based on the multinomial logistic loss and the trace-norm regularization penalty. Reframing the challenging non-smooth optimization problem into a surrogate infinite-dimensional optimization problem with a regular L1–regularization penalty, we propose a simple and provably efficient accelerated coordinate descent algorithm. Furthermore, we show how to perform efficient matrix computations in the compressed domain for quantized dense visual features, scaling up to 100,000s examples, 1,000s-dimensional features, and 100s of categories. Promising experimental results on the subsets of ImageNet are presented.
