Distributed learning is a method to handle big data. It is based on adivide-and-conquer approach and consists of three steps: first we divide over-sized data into subsets and each data subset is distributed to one individual machine; then each machine processes the distributed data subset to produce one output; finally the outputs from individual machines are combined to generate an output of the distributed learning algorithm. It is expected that the distributed learning algorithm can perform as efficiently as one big machine which could process the whole oversized data, in addition to the advantages of reducing storage and computing costs. This talk demonstrates some mathematical analysis of distributed learning with least squares regularization schemes in reproducing kernel Hilbert spaces. We provide error bounds in the most general situation and present minimax learning rates for the distributed learning algorithm. Integral operators and their approximations play an important role in our study.
