ISOR Colloquium

"Overparametrization and the bias-variance dilemma"

Speaker: Johannes Schmidt-Hieber (University of Twente)

HS 7 OMP1 (#1.303)
Oskar-Morgenstern-Platz 1, 1090 Wien


For several machine learning methods such as neural networks, good generalisation performance has been reported in the overparametrized regime. In view of the classical bias-variance trade-off, this behaviour is highly counterintuitive. The talk summarizes recent theoretical results on overparametrization and the bias-variance trade-off. This is joint work with Alexis Derumigny.
