**The Learning Problem + Learning task: search for Optimization is hard!**

DATA weights Hypothesis + Learning task: search for Optimization is hard! Typically resort to local optimization methods: gradient ascent, greedy hill-climbing, EM Density estimation: Classification: Logistic regression:

3
Escaping local maxima Local methods converge to (one of many) local optimum TABU search Random restarts Simulated annealing Score Stuck here h These methods work by step perturbation during the local search

4
**Weight Perturbation Our Idea: Perturbation of instance weights**

Do until convergence Perturb instance weights Use optimizer as black box To maximize on original goal diminish magnitude of perturbation Benefits: Generality: a wide variety of learning scenarios Modularity: Search is unchanged Effectiveness: Allows global changes

5
Weight Perturbation W h Score DATA LOCAL SEARCH REWEIGHT Hypothesis

6
Weight Perturbation Our Idea: Perturbation of instance weights Puts stronger emphasis on a subset of the instances Allows the learning procedure to escape local maxima W DATA W DATA perturb

7
**Iterative Procedure Benefits: DATA LOCAL SEARCH REWEIGHT Hypothesis**

Score W DATA LOCAL SEARCH REWEIGHT Hypothesis Benefits: Generality: a wide variety of learning scenarios Modularity: Search is unchanged Effectiveness: Allows global changes

8
**Iterative Procedure Two methods for reweighting**

Random: Sampling random weights Adversarial: Directed reweighting To maximize on original goal slowly diminish magnitude of perturbations

9
**Mean is original weight**

Random Reweighting Mean is original weight hot cold Wt Variance temp P(W) Wt+2 W W* When hot, model can “go” almost anywhere and local maxima are bypassed When cold, search fine- tunes to find optimum with respect to original data Wt+1 Distance from original W

10
**Adversarial Reweighting**

Idea: Challenge model by increasing w of “bad” (low scoring) instances Challenge the model by emphasizing bad samples (minimize the score using W) hot cold Wt A min-max game between re-weighting and optimizer Wt+1 W* Converge towards original distribution by constraining distance from W* Kivinen & Warmuth

**Alarm network: 37 variables, 1000 samples**

**Simulated annealing Simulated annealing:**

allow “bad” moves with some probability Score h P(move) f(temp,) Wasteful propose, evaluate, reject cycle Needs a long time to escape local maxima WORSE then baseline on Bayesian networks!

18
**Summary and Future Work**

General method applicable to a variety of learning scenarios decision trees, clustering, phylogenetic trees, TSP… Promising empirical results approach “achievable” maximum The BIG challenge: THEORETICAL INSIGHTS

19
**same comparison is true of Random Vs. Bagging/Bootstrap**

Adversary ≠ Boosting Adversary Output: Single hypothesis Weights: Converge to original distribution Learning: ht+1 depends on ht Boosting An ensemble Diverge from original distribution ht+1 depends only on wt+1 same comparison is true of Random Vs. Bagging/Bootstrap

20
**Other annealing methods**

Simulated annealing: allow “bad” moves with some probability Deterministic annealing: Change scenery by changing family of h simple hypothesis Score h Score h P(move) f(temp,) complex hypothesis Not good on Bayesian network! Is not naturally applicable!

22
Escaping local maxima Local methods converge to (one of many) local optimum TABU search, Random restarts, Simulated annealing Our Idea: Anneal with perturbation of instance weights instead of search perturbation W W Score Score P(move) f(temp,) start here Standard Annealing: allow “bad” moves Weight Annealing: change in scenery temp
