Re: Universal Approximation theorem

Yes gradient descent with back-propagation is the most widely used method when training a neural networks with supervised learning. later more discussion material!.. Why? It's an awful,method. Can you please tell why you think it is awful? (Apologies if you already did earlier in this thread. but I...

Re: EV Battery/Motor Materials

Who says there will be a market? Maybe a monopoly as with Jan Pieterszoon Coen and Banda islands in the 1630s?

Re: Universal Approximation theorem

"It has become clear that kernel methods provide a framework for tackling some rather profound issues in machine learning theory. At the same time, successful applications have demonstrated that SVMs not only have a more solid foundation than artificial neural networks, but are able to serve a...

Re: Universal Approximation theorem

@Cuchulainn we might intervene in this conference , that I severely criticized recently due to their positioning for artificial intelligence. Might the quantitative community starting to open up to critcisms ? I wish I had your faith. I am not convinced. But what do I know. " a real quant is s...

Re: Philosophy of Mathematics

He did the worst thing to natural sciences - crowned mathematics their queen. He's like Hitler compared to Atiyah's and Shorr's little crimes!
Why do you like invoking Godwin's Law?
You need to do some reading up on your Euler.

Re: Philosophy of Mathematics

Shorr's new paper claiming in the abstract "This destroys the RSA cryptosystem.": https://eprint.iacr.org/2021/232.pdf I believe that there exist an efficient deterministic method of finding primes (without using a quantum computer!) - which is yet to be found itself (what a prime method ...
