Title:Deconstructing Lottery Tickets: Zeros, Signs, and the Supermask

Thanks to the authors for providing a rebuttal, it really helped drive the subsequent discussion between myself and the reviewers. Ultimately, we could not reach an overwhelming consensus amongst the reviewers. But I found the arguments presented by the positive reviews to be compelling enough that I will argue for acceptance of this work. The main contribution being a thorough empirical analysis of the LTH paper, which is an exciting result that would definitely benefit from more understanding in the community. I think the empirical kind of understanding is valuable so despite the lack of theory so I will be recommending this paper be accepted.
