Dual-Free Stochastic Decentralized Optimization with Variance Reduction

Meta Review

The paper integrates some existing techniques, such as dual free trick and variance reduction technique. The novelty at the theoretically side is OK but not very high. The experiments validate the effectiveness of the proposed algorithm. It received three positive scores: 8,6,7, with relatively high confidence. The AC thus deemed that the paper can be accepted.
