Loss surfaces of neural networks and random matrix theory

Talk by Prof. Dr. Joseph Najnudel

Speaker invited by: Prof. Dr. Ashkan Nikeghbali

Abstract: In a joint work with Baskerville, Keating and Mazzadri, we study the distribution of the critical points of loss functions of neural networks. In particular, we show that the distribution of these critical points can be connected to the spectrum of large random matrices with Gaussian entries.Slides
