In machine learning, there has been considerable interest over the past decade in understanding the ability of optimization algorithms to generalize—namely, to produce solutions (models) that extend well to unseen data—particularly in the context of overparameterized problems. I will survey several recent theoretical studies that explore generalization in classical convex optimization, that reveal intriguing behavior of common optimization methods and shed some light on the concept of generalization in high dimension.
