Cultivating DNN Diversity for Large Scale Video Labelling

13 Jul 2017  ·  Mikel Bober-Irizar, Sameed Husain, Eng-Jon Ong, Miroslaw Bober ·

We investigate factors controlling DNN diversity in the context of the Google Cloud and YouTube-8M Video Understanding Challenge. While it is well-known that ensemble methods improve prediction performance, and that combining accurate but diverse predictors helps, there is little knowledge on how to best promote & measure DNN diversity... We show that diversity can be cultivated by some unexpected means, such as model over-fitting or dropout variations. We also present details of our solution to the video understanding problem, which ranked #7 in the Kaggle competition (competing as the Yeti team). read more
