Difference between Deep Networks vs Shallow Networks ? Deep Networks - The number of hidden layers are more in deep networks with large number of parameters. Since there are higher number of parameters, higher the degree of non-linearity in the network. Hence this increases the capability to extract high level features. Shallow Networks - The ...

Summary - Densenet

Densenet-Densely Connected Convolutional Networks Paper Let’s understand Densenet. In this paper, we embrace this observation and introduce the Dense Convolutional Network (DenseNet), which connects each layer to every other layer in a feed-forward fashion. Whereas traditional convolutional networks with L layers have L connections—one betw... Read more

Different Convolutions

Pointwise Convolution or 1x1 convolution It is a 1x1 convolution kernel. This helps in acquiring pixel by pixel level feature extraction. But the main purpose is, When the number channels in the previous layers needs to be shrinked , then we use 1x1 convolution. This reduces the problem of computational cost. For all the features lear... Read more

Intro to Receptive field from a Research Paper

Understanding the Effective Receptive Field in Deep Convolutional Neural Networks The receptive field size is a crucial issue in many visual tasks , as the output must respond to large enough areas in the image to capture information about large objects. The effective receptive field show that it both has Gaussian distribution and onl... Read more

Feed Forward Propagation from Andrew Ng Machine Learning Lecture

Neural networks are a series of stacked layers. Deeper the network, higher the number of layers. Layer 1 is called the input layer and Layer 3 is called the Output layer. The intermediate layer are called the hidden layer. The number of hidden layer might vary depending on the network complexity. In this case, Layer 2 is the hidden layer. ... Read more
