Seminar: "Perspectives on contraction theory and neural networks"

Professor Francesco Bullo
Department of Mechanical Engineering 
UC Santa Barbara
California, USA

19 May 2022, 15:00 

Professor Francesco Bullo is ​a 2021/2022 Sackler Lecturer of the Mortimer and Raymond Sackler Institute of Advanced Studies.



Basic questions in dynamical neuroscience and machine learning motivate the study of the stability, robustness, entrainment, and computational efficiency properties of neural network models. I will present some elements of a comprehensive contraction theory for neural networks. Using nonEuclidean norms I will review recent advances in analyzing and training a class of recurrent/implicit models.

Joint work with Alexander Davydov, Saber Jafarpour, Anton Proskurnikov.
