Title: Towards Deep Understanding on Convolutional Neural Networks
Date and Time：10:30 -12:00 am, Monday, July 20, 2016
Venue: Room 146, Research Building
Brief: We have witnessed an evolution in computer vision caused by the Convolutional Neural Network (CNN). Despite the impressive performance, many researchers or developers consider the CNN as a black box, and the internal properties of this deep hierarchical model remain less explored. In this talk, we will introduce several recent work, including adding new transform invariance, constructing mid-level neural structures, designing new regularization methods, and applying the deep features to image classification in a more efficient way. With these efforts, we go one step further towards deep understanding the CNN.
