Deep Learning Networks: Advantages of ReLU over Sigmoid Function

Posted on October 11, 2018 at 6:00pm 0 Comments

This was posted as a question on StackExchange. The state of the art of non-linearity is to use rectified linear units (ReLU) instead of sigmoid function in deep neural network. What are the advantages? I know that training a network when ReLU is used would be faster, and it is more biological inspired, what are the other advantages? (That is, any disadvantages of using sigmoid)?…


Deep Learning: AlphaGo Zero Explained In One Picture

Posted on January 4, 2018 at 6:00pm 1 Comment

Recently Google DeepMind announced AlphaGo Zero — an extraordinary achievement that has shown how it is possible to train an agent to a superhuman level in the highly complex and challenging domain of Go, ‘tabula rasa’ — that is, from a blank slate, with no human expert play used as training data.

It thrashed the previous reincarnation 100–0, using only 4TPUs instead of 48TPUs and a single…
