[R] Understanding the generalization of “lottery tickets” in neural networks

Sharing our recent blog post summarizing some of our recent work understanding the boundaries of the lottery ticket hypothesis. In particular, we make some progress towards the following questions:

  • Do winning ticket initializations contain generic inductive biases or are they overfit to the particular dataset and optimizer used to generate them?
  • Is the lottery ticket phenomenon limited to supervised image classification, or is it also present in other domains like RL and NLP?
  • Can we begin to explain lottery tickets theoretically?
