Component-wise Iterative Optimization (CIO) is a method of dealing with a large data in the OLAP applications, which can be treated as the enhancement of the traditional batch version methods such as least squares. The salient feature of the method is to process transactions one by one, optimizes estimates iteratively for each parameter over the given objective function, and update models on the fly. A new learning algorithm can be proposed when applying CIO to feed-forward neural networks with a single hidden layer. It incorporates the internal structure of feed-forward neural networks with a single hidden layer by applying the algorithm CIO in closed-form expressions to update weights between the output layer and the hidden layer. Its optimally computational property is a natural consequence inherited from the property of the algorithm CIO and is also demonstrated in an illustrative example.
