How deep learning works --The geometry of deep learning

30 Oct 2017  ·  Xiao Dong, Jiasong Wu, Ling Zhou ·

Why and how that deep learning works well on different tasks remains a mystery from a theoretical perspective. In this paper we draw a geometric picture of the deep learning system by finding its analogies with two existing geometric structures, the geometry of quantum computations and the geometry of the diffeomorphic template matching... In this framework, we give the geometric structures of different deep learning systems including convolutional neural networks, residual networks, recursive neural networks, recurrent neural networks and the equilibrium prapagation framework. We can also analysis the relationship between the geometrical structures and their performance of different networks in an algorithmic level so that the geometric framework may guide the design of the structures and algorithms of deep learning systems. read more
