Recently, the introduction of residual connections in conjunction with a more traditional architecture has yielded state-of-the-art performance in the 2015 ILSVRC challenge; its performance was similar to the latest generation Inception-v3 network. Here we give clear empirical evidence that training with residual connections accelerates the training of Inception networks significantly. We also present several new streamlined architectures for both residual and non-residual Inception networks.
