Correction to “The Importance of Convexity in Learning With Squared Loss” [Sep 98 1974-1980]
Lee, Wee Sun, Bartlett, Peter L., & Williamson, Robert C. (2008) Correction to “The Importance of Convexity in Learning With Squared Loss” [Sep 98 1974-1980]. IEEE Transactions on Information Theory, 54(9), p. 4395.
The paper "the importance of convexity in learning with squared loss" gave a lower bound on the sample complexity of learning with quadratic loss using a nonconvex function class. The proof contains an error. We show that the lower bound is true under a stronger condition that holds for many cases of interest.
