Using alternate optimization methods in recommender.create

User 3218 | 2/28/2016, 3:22:54 AM

Hi,

Right now, the recommender.create() is using sgd for optimization. Is there a way to use one of the better optimizers as reported in literature, such as adagrad?

Thanks!

Hi Delip, We do support adagrad, simply set the solver argument as explained here: https://dato.com/products/create/docs/generated/graphlab.recommender.factorization_recommender.create.html

@DannyBickson that's awesome. Also loving the other knobs exposed by this method. :+1:
