Erratum: SGDQN is Less Careful than Expected

Abstract: The SGDQN algorithm described in (Bordes et al., 2009) contains a subtle flaw that prevents it from reaching its design goals. Yet the flawed SGDQN algorithm has worked well enough to be a winner of the first Pascal Large Scale Learning Challenge (Sonnenburg et al., 2008). This document clarifies the situation, proposes a corrected algorithm, and evaluates its performance.

This paper started as an small erratum for (Bordes et al., 2009) and eventually morphed into a full contribution subjected to the normal review process.
