Currently, Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN) have been widely used in many applications. Image recognition is one of the applications utilizing CNN... For most of the research in this field, CNN is used mainly to increase the effectiveness of the recognition. However, the processing time and the amount of the parameters (or model size) are not taken into account as the main factors. In this paper, the image recognition for Thai food using a smartphone is studied. The processing time and the model size are reduced so that they can be properly used with smartphones. A new network called NUInNet (Naresuan University Inception Network) that adopts the concept of Inception module used in GoogLeNet is proposed in the paper. It is applied and tested with Thai food database called THFOOD-50, which contains 50 kinds of famousThai food. It is found that NU-InNet can reduce the processing time and the model size by the factors of 2 and 10, respectively, comparing to those obtained from GoogLeNet while maintaining the recognition precision to the same level as GoogLeNet. This significant reduction in the processing time and the model size using the proposed network can certainly satisfy users for Thai-food recognition application in a smartphone. read more
