By : David Steurer - Cornell University IC Faculty candidate Abstract : Non-convex and discrete optimization problems are at the heart of many algorithmic tasks that arise in machine learning and other computing applications. A promising approach to solve such problems is the sum-of-squares (SOS) meta-algorithm, which has been discovered multiple times across different disciplines ...

Deep convolutional neural networks (DCNNs) have led to breakthrough results in numerous machine learning tasks, yet a comprehensive mathematical theory explaining this success seems distant. In this talk, we explain how the structure of DCNNs naturally leads to desirable invariance and deformation insensitivity properties for feature extraction and classification. We then establish formally that deep ... Read more about "Harmonic analysis of deep convolutional neural networks"
