Don't worry. I have a special pointing device for my slide shows (better than those silly lasers)

It's a light saber according to the latest C++ standard.

Another distraction. Stick to Pareto. 90% of the stuff in ju-jutsu is useless.

The 90% is the element of surprise, which enables twiggies like I deafeat biggies like you.

Some papers for peeps complaining about of lack rigorous analysis of SGD and deep networks:

I have stopped reading all these articles. Why? I don't understand them(*) and I have decided to reverse engineer well-designed libraries to discover the algorithms and software design of the individual components.


(*) similar to Wiki comment
Many metaheuristic methods have been published with claims of novelty and practical efficacy. While the field also features high-quality research, many of the publications have been of poor quality; flaws include vagueness, lack of conceptual elaboration, poor experiments, and ignorance of previous literature.

That's the way it seems. Of course, I might be missing some vital information.

It's not a matter of complaining; a mathematician would say that it not even wrong. Maybe other disciplines would take a different view on this.
These papers are more of the same. Not very exciting, is it? Too many Achilles' heels and fixes.It seems to be quite brittle if we read he literature..
What about more upmarket stuff.
