LAP Lambert Academic Publishing Regularization is a dominant theme in machine learning and statistics due to its prominent ability in providing an intuitive and principled tool for learning from high-dimensional data. As large-scale learning applications become popular, developing efficient algorithms and parsimonious models become promising and necessary for these applications. Aiming at solving large-scale learning problems, this book tackles the key research problems ranging from feature selection to learning with mixed unlabeled data and learning data similarity representation. More specifically, we focus on the problems in three areas: online learning, semi-supervised learning, and multiple kernel learning. The proposed models can be applied in various applications, including marketing analysis, bioinformatics, pattern recognition, etc.
