The LibAUC Library is an open source library that we recently launched (April 2021). We have developed several practical and efficient algorithms for large-scale training for maximizing AUC score (including AUROC, AUPRC) for learning deep neural networks. Our DeepAUC method has achieved great success on various medical image datasets (e.g., 1st Place at Stanford CheXpert Competition) and biology datasets. We will continuously develop the library to benefit the community. For more detials, please check our LibAUC library website. If you are interested in the research of deepAUC methods on your data, we are glad to collaborate.
The birds library is a distributed library aiming to solve big data classification and regression problems in a distributed enviorment (a cluster of machines) or parallel fashion (a multi-core machine).
It implements a practical distributed stochastic dual coordinate ascent proposed in the following paper:
T. Yang. Trading Computation for Communication: Distributed Stochastic Dual Coordinate Ascent. NIPS, 2013.
The library can solve the following linear classification and regression problems:
