Title:Overview of Singular Learning Theory
Seminar:Tensor Networks and Applications Seminar
Speaker:William Wright, Penn State University
Abstract:
We will discuss the basics of statistical learning theory and address what it means for a statistical model to be singular. Next, we will outline the role of algebraic geometry in understanding the asymptotic behavior of such learning machines. With an eye toward computational complexity, we will then discuss an alternative approach to certain classes of models known as regularly parametrized models.
