ESPNetv2: A Light-weight, Power Efficient, and General Purpose Convolutional Neural Network

CVPR 2019 Sachin MehtaMohammad RastegariLinda ShapiroHannaneh Hajishirzi

We introduce a light-weight, power efficient, and general purpose convolutional neural network, ESPNetv2, for modeling visual and sequential data. Our network uses group point-wise and depth-wise dilated separable convolutions to learn representations from a large effective receptive field with fewer FLOPs and parameters... (read more)
