Background: Matrix factorization is a well established pattern discovery tool that has seen numerous applications in biomedical data analytics, such as gene expression co-clustering, patient stratification, and gene-disease association mining. Matrix factorization learns a latent data model that takes a data matrix and transforms it into a latent feature space enabling generalization, noise removal and feature discovery. However, factorization algorithms are numerically intensive, and hence there is a pressing challenge to scale current algorithms to work with large datasets. Read More
