Towards Theoretically Understanding Why SGD Generalizes Better Than ADAM in Deep Learning

no code implementations NeurIPS 2020 Pan Zhou, Jiashi Feng, Chao Ma, Caiming Xiong, Steven Hoi, Weinan E

The result shows that (1) the escaping time of both SGD and ADAM~depends on the Radon measure of the basin positively and the heaviness of gradient noise negatively; (2) for the same basin, SGD enjoys smaller escaping time than ADAM, mainly because (a) the geometry adaptation in ADAM~via adaptively scaling each gradient coordinate well diminishes the anisotropic structure in gradient noise and results in larger Radon measure of a basin; (b) the exponential gradient average in ADAM~smooths its gradient and leads to lighter gradient noise tails than SGD.
