Adam (name derived from Adaptive Moment Estimation) is a machine learning algorithm for first-order gradient-based optimization that computes adaptive learning rates for each parameter.
Adagrad works well for sparse gradients by scaling the learning rate for each parameter according to the history of gradients from previous iterations.
In RMSprop, the learning rate is adapted using the moving average of the squared gradient for each weight, making it useful for mini-batch learning in on-line settings.
There are a few small but important differences between Adam and the algorithms it is based on.
Adam differs from RMSprop with momentum in 2 ways:
In Adagrad, the abstract function that scales learning rate for parameters is the sum of all past and current gradients. In Adam, this abstract function is the moving averages of past squared gradients.
