On the Relationship between the Structure in the Data and What Deep Learning Can Learn


The past six years have seen a dramatic increase in the performance of recognition systems due to the introduction of deep architectures for feature learning and classification. However, the mathematical reasons for this success remain elusive. In this talk, we will briefly survey some existing theory of deep learning. In particular, we will focus on data structure based theory and discuss two recent developments. The first studies the generalization error of deep neural network. The second focuses on solving minimization problems with neural networks.
