I'm comparing 2 optimization algorithms for deep neural nets through visualizing the loss landscape. The visualization method is described here.

Besides the qualitative observation that how trajectory moves w.r.t. the loss level-sets, are there any quantitive measures to compare the two methods?

How about:

  • speed of convergence
  • stability/variance w.r.t to the initial random seed (or other sources of variance like learning rate)
  • presence/number of saddle points in your loss landscape
