Short Honk: Renormalization Group Equation
July 6, 2015
A short honk for the math lovers: I recommend “Why Deep Learning Works 2: The Renormalization Group.” The post presents several important examples of renormalization, which is Fancy Math for figuring out variances and then figuring out what the inputs are “about.” (Math nerds, I am trying to express important concepts in a very, very simple way.) The big ideas explained pretty well are manifolds and renormalization. The methods are applicable to certain types of machine learning. A happy quack to Dr. Charles Martin for this article.
