Hello people, I am sure I understand what convex functions are. I can imagine one in 3D. I think I have an idea of what Neural Networks are. Please can someone please tell me is meant by "convex neural network objectives" and "non-convex neural network objectives"

Hi Saheed, 

I am pretty sure they refer to a nn whose loss function is convex.
so there may be a more efficient way to find the optimization point than gradient descent.
