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.

SJTU & MIT Paper Reinvents Neural Architecture Search; Slashes Computational Resource Requirements

The dearth of AI talents capable of manually designing neural architecture such as AlexNet and ResNet has spurred research in automatic architecture design. Google’s Cloud AutoML is an example of a system that enables developers with limited machine learning expertise to train high quality models. The trade-off, however, is AutoML’s high computational costs.
