Subject Re: MultipleLinearRegression - Strange results

I agree that given a small data set it's probably better to solve the
linear regression problem directly. However, I'm not so sure how well this
performs if the data gets really big (more in terms of number of data
points). But maybe we can find something like a sweet spot when to switch
between both methods. And maybe a distributed conjugate gradient methods
can also beat SGD if the data is too large to be computed on a single

Until we have adagrad or another more robust learning rate strategy, we
could also deactivate the default value for simple SGD. This makes users
aware that they have to tweak this parameter.
