relu, smoothness assumption and Pylearn

1) What makes relu scale invariant? How does it relate to images?

2) What is problematic with the smoothness assumption? How can we get around this and still use simple parametric or local non-parametric model (Gaussian kernel for example)?

A practical question about pylearn for Ian :

3) Is there a convenient way to define an unsupervised pretraining followed by a supervised training using a yaml file? Or do we need to write a script do to so?

    Ok and in the second file rather than defining the model structure, I give the file_path to the saved layer or model I want to reuse? Is it possible in yaml definition to specify a layer of a model if I only need to reuse the layer and not the entire model?

    I think you can just pass two yaml files to and it will run both of them in sequence.
