- TL;DR: Description of the limiting spectrum of the Hesian of the loss surface of DNNs in the infinite-width limit.
- Abstract: The dynamics of DNNs during gradient descent is described by the so-called Neural Tangent Kernel (NTK). In this article, we show that the NTK allows one to gain precise insight into the Hessian of the cost of DNNs: we obtain a full characterization of the asymptotics of the spectrum of the Hessian, at initialization and during training.
