Optimization Methods for Deep Learning

Course Outline

Deep learning involves a difficult non-convex optimization problem. The goal of this course is to study the efficiency and the robustness of optimization methods for deep learning. We will run this course in the following formats: This course is highly research oriented. You want to take it only if you are interested in the research of optimization on deep learning.

Among the various types of networks, we will pay more attention to CNN.
