Designing Explicit Regularizers for Deep Models

I will discuss some recent results on designing explicit regularizers to improve the generalization performances of deep neural networks. We derive data-dependent generalization bounds for deep neural networks. We empirically regularize the bounds and obtain improved generalization performance (in terms of the standard accuracy or the robust accuracy). I will also touch on recent results on applying these techniques to imbalanced datasets. 

Based on joint work with Colin Wei, Kaidi Cao, Adrien Gaidon, and Nikos Arechiga
