In this paper, we consider the widely used but not fully understood stochastic estimator based on moving average (SEMA), which only requires {\bf a general unbiased stochastic oracle}. We demonstrate the power of SEMA on a range of stochastic non-convex optimization problems. In particular, we analyze various stochastic methods (existing or newly proposed) based on the {\bf variance recursion property} of SEMA for three families of non-convex optimization, namely standard stochastic non-convex minimization, stochastic non-convex strongly-concave min-max optimization, and stochastic bilevel optimization. Our contributions include: (i) for standard stochastic non-convex minimization, we present a simple and intuitive proof of convergence for a family of Adam-style methods (including Adam, AMSGrad, AdaBound, etc.) with an increasing or large "momentum" parameter for the first-order moment, which gives an alternative yet more natural way to guarantee Adam converge; (ii) for stochastic non-convex strongly-concave min-max optimization, we present a single-loop primal-dual stochastic momentum and adaptive methods based on the moving average estimators and establish its oracle complexity of $O(1/\epsilon^4)$ without using a large mini-batch size, addressing a gap in the literature; (iii) for stochastic bilevel optimization, we present a single-loop stochastic method based on the moving average estimators and establish its oracle complexity of $\widetilde O(1/\epsilon^4)$ without computing the SVD of the Hessian matrix, improving state-of-the-art results. For all these problems, we also establish a variance diminishing result for the used stochastic gradient estimators.
