SGD (Stochastic Gradient Descent) is used in most libraries of different programming languages. Is it also used in machine learning libraries?

  • $\begingroup$ Absolutely, it's a very common method implemented for instance in scikit-learn. $\endgroup$ – Juho Apr 17 '19 at 15:56

Big yes.

In fact, gradient descent is one of the fundamental tools used by many supervised learning models.

You can check out a very nice docs page about how it is used in scikit-learn.
