VC dimension of neural networks with rectified activations

The Vapnik-Chervonenkis (VC) dimension is one way to measure the capacity of a family of classifiers. (Deep) neural network are a widely applied classifier. In this talk I present the recent bounds by Bartlett et. on the VC dimension of a network employing the popular rectified (or ReLU) activation function. For a network of L layers and W weights they prove the almost tight bounds Omega(WLlog(W/L) and O(WLlog(W). I'll further talk about recent efforts in characterizing the induced input space partition of a ReLU network and hint at possible research directions.
