Kronecker-factored Curvature Approximations for Recurrent Neural Networks

ICLR 2018 James MartensJimmy BaMatt Johnson

Kronecker-factor Approximate Curvature (Martens & Grosse, 2015) (K-FAC) is a 2nd-order optimization method which has been shown to give state-of-the-art performance on large-scale neural network optimization tasks (Ba et al., 2017). It is based on an approximation to the Fisher information matrix (FIM) that makes assumptions about the particular structure of the network and the way it is parameterized... (read more)
