Accelerating Cross-Validation in Multinomial Logistic Regression with $\ell_1$-Regularization.

Yoshiyuki Kabashima, Tomoyuki Obuchi

We develop an approximate formula for evaluating a cross-validation estimator of predictive likelihood for multinomial logistic regression regularized by an $\ell_1$-norm. This allows us to avoid repeated optimizations required for literally conducting cross-validation; hence, the computational time can be significantly reduced. The formula is derived through a perturbative approach employing the largeness of the data size and the model dimensionality. Its usefulness is demonstrated on simulated data and the ISOLET dataset from the UCI machine learning repository.
