Upgrading CNN With OctConv

Researchers from Facebook, the National University of Singapore, and the Qihoo 360 AI Institute have jointly proposed OctConv (Octave Convolution), a promising new alternative to traditional convolution operations. Akin to a “compressor” for Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN), the OctConv method saves computational resources while boosting effectiveness.
