The Technical University of Munich (TUM) had lured Cheng from a Japanese research institute. At TUM he founded the Institute of Cognitive Systems (ICS). With eight employees in a central office on Karlstraße 45, Cheng set to work on his arduous task: recreating the complexities of human skin and wiring it all to a brain.
The ShuffleNet utilizes pointwise group convolution and channel shuffle to reduce computation cost while maintaining accuracy. It manages to obtain lower top-1 error than the MobileNet system on ImageNet classification, and achieves ~13x actual speedup over AlexNet while maintaining comparable accuracy.
