Optimal Method for Distributed Convex Optimization and Some Examples

Alexander Gasnikov, MPTI, Moscow

Based on the works:
https://arxiv.org/pdf/1712.00232.pdf
https://arxiv.org/pdf/1803.02933.pdf
we describe optimal first-order methods for decentralized distributed convex optimization problems.
We'll also try to generalize these results to the time-varying communication graphs.

A Failure of Screening and the Rise of Manipulation

Ehud Lehrer, Tel-Aviv University

This paper offers two related insights into the problem of competitive and non-competitive screening.
The first concerns a decision maker who screens elements from a general set based on noisy unbiased assessments.
We show that stricter screening not only reduces the number of accepted elements, but possibly derogates their expected value, leading to a screening failure.
