  • Scattering
  • Extensions
  • Group Formalism
  • Supervised Learning: classification.
  • Properties of CNN representations: invertibility, stability, invariance.
  • covariance/invariance: capsules and related models.
  • Connections with other models: dictionary learning, LISTA, Random Forests.
  • Other tasks: localization, regression.
  • Embeddings (DrLim), inverse problems
  • Extensions to non-euclidean domains.
  • Dynamical systems: RNNs and optimal control.
