Cyclops: Cyclic Coordinate Descent for Logistic, Poisson and Survival Analysis

This model fitting tool incorporates cyclic coordinate descent and majorization-minimization approaches to fit a variety of regression models found in large-scale observational healthcare data. Implementations focus on computational optimization and fine-scale parallelization to yield efficient inference in massive datasets. Please see: Suchard, Simpson, Zorych, Ryan and Madigan (2013) <doi:10.1145/2414416.2414791>.
