Title: What Kinds of Functions Do Neural Networks Learn?Abstract: Neural nets have made an amazing comeback during the past decade. Their empirical success has been truly phenomenal, but neural nets are poorly understood in a mathematical sense compared to classical methods like splines, kernels, and wavelets. This talk describes recent steps towards a mathematical theory of neural networks comparable to the foundations we have for classical nonparametric methods.
