Episode 58: There is physics in deep learning!
Apr 30th, 2019 by frag
There is a connection between gradient descent based optimizers and the dynamics of damped harmonic oscillators. What does that mean? We now have a better theory for optimization algorithms.
In this episode I explain how all this works.
All the formulas I mention in the episode can be found in the post The physics of optimization algorithms
Enjoy the show.
