Blind Descent: A Prequel to Gradient Descent

20 Jun 2020Akshat GuptaPrasad N R

We describe an alternative to gradient descent for backpropogation through a neural network, which we call Blind Descent. We believe that Blind Descent can be used to augment backpropagation by using it as an initialisation method and can also be used at saturation... (read more)
