[Discussion] Does Global Optimizers such as BARON help training neural networks better?

[Discussion] Does Global Optimizers such as BARON help training neural networks better?

Example cost functions of neural network

I was wondering if the cost functions of neural network are non-convex, why are we still using stochastic gradient methods such as SGD or Adam?

Does Global Optimization Solvers work? I would want to try BARON.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BARON

Does anyone has experience or know any reason why global optimizers are not being used?

Maybe hardware is not good enough? But with all the google TPU and quantum computer being developed, I doubt this is the case.
