Guy Gur-Ari


I am a staff research scientist. I received my PhD in theoretical physics from the Weizmann Institute of Science in 2014, and was a postdoctoral researcher at Stanford University and at the IAS in Princeton, where I conducted research in string theory, quantum field theory, and black hole physics. My current research is focused on applying physics tools and ideas to deep learning understanding. My papers include Asymptotics of Wide Networks from Feynman Diagrams (ICML 2019), Wider Networks Learn Better Features, and Gradient Descent Happens in a Tiny Subspace.
