We study unconstrained optimization problems with nonsmooth and convex objective function in the form of a mathematical expectation. The proposed method approximates the expected objective function with a sample average function using Inexact Restoration-based adapted sample sizes. The sample size is chosen in an adaptive manner based on Inexact Restoration. The algorithm uses line search and assumes descent directions with respect to the current approximate function. We prove the a.s. convergence under standard assumptions. Numerical results for two types of problems, machine learning loss function for training classifiers and stochastic linear complementarity problems, prove the efficiency of the proposed scheme.
