ML Algorithms addendum: Passive Aggressive Algorithms

Passive Aggressive Algorithms are a family of online learning algorithms (for both classification and regression) proposed by Crammer at al. The idea is very simple and their performance has been proofed to be superior to many other alternative methods like Online Perceptron and MIRA (see the original paper in the…
