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.

Google Brain Simplifies Network Learning Dynamics Characterization Under Gradient Descent

Machine learning models based on deep neural networks have achieved unprecedented performance on many tasks. These models are generally considered to be complex systems and difficult to analyze theoretically. Also, since it’s usually a high-dimensional non-convex loss surface which governs the optimization process, it is very challenging to describe the gradient-based dynamics of these models during training.
