Deep neural networks have led to breakthrough results in numerous practical machine learning tasks such as image classification, image captioning, control-policy-learning to play the board game Go, and most recently the prediction of protein structures. In this lecture, we will attempt to understand some of the structural and mathematical reasons driving these successes. Specifically, we study what is possible in principle if no constraints are imposed on the learning algorithm and on the amount and quality of training data. The guiding theme will be a relation between the complexity of the objects to be learned and the networks approximating them, with the central result stating that universal Kolmogorov-optimality is achieved by feedforward neural networks in function learning and by recurrent neural networks in dynamical system learning.
