Skip Connection Blocks

One-Shot Aggregation is an image model block that is an alternative to Dense Blocks, by aggregating intermediate features. It is proposed as part of the VoVNet architecture. Each convolution layer is connected by two-way connection. One way is connected to the subsequent layer to produce the feature with a larger receptive field while the other way is aggregated only once into the final output feature map. The difference with DenseNet is that the output of each layer is not routed to all subsequent intermediate layers which makes the input size of intermediate layers constant.
